France’s data protection authority, the CNIL, looks at the effect of the EU General Data Protection Regulation four months after its implementation date. The CNIL states 24,500 organizations have appointed a data protection officer since May 25, up from 13,000 prior to the deadline. The DPA has received more than 600 data breach notifications since the beginning of the GDPR and 3,767 complaints since the start of the year, up 64 percent from the same period in 2017. The CNIL also outlines some of its future GDPR initiatives, including introducing a biometrics “standard regulation” and a certification procedure.
