The Bavarian Data Protection Authority released a questionnaire designed to assist companies assessing where they stand in terms of General Data Protection Regulation implementation, Hunton & Williams reports. The questionnaire was sent to 150 randomly selected Bavarian companies and asked questions about GDPR procedures and the responsibilities of the data protection officer, data processing activities and privacy by design, onboarding of external vendors and data processing agreements, transparency and privacy notices, accountability and data breach notifications. The DPA said it will conduct more investigations after the May 2018 implementation date, and the results of the questionnaire will be used to dictate how the investigations will proceed. Editor's Note: The IAPP has launched a new blog dedicated to the data protection officer.
