A full month has passed since the EU General Data Protection Regulation went into effect May 25, and the GDPR has already had a wide-ranging global impact, with multiple U.S.-based news sites, such as the Los Angeles Times, restricting access to EU users and complaints reportedly coming in related to the practices of big tech companies. But how many complaints? Are consumers rushing to deluge their local data protection authorities? To find out, the IAPP reached out to DPAs of each of the 28 member states to check in and discuss how many complaints they had received since May 25, and we are using today's one-month anniversary of GDPR Day to publish the first look at the data. The results we received varied greatly. The IAPP's John Choudhari has the data for The Privacy Advisor.
