If you were hoping EU regulators are feeling generous ahead of GDPR enforcement, you're out of luck. Information Commissioner's Office Head of International Strategy & Intelligence Steve Wood made that clear in his keynote at the IAPP's Data Protection Intensive in London on Wednesday. "Will there be a grace period? No. You will not hear talk of grace periods from people at the ICO. That's not part of our regulatory strategy," he said. "What you will see is a common sense, pragmatic approach to regulatory principals." The ICO will focus on risk, he said, adding it's happy to work with organizations if there's an area that seems a little shady or unclear. But grace period? No. Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, has the story in this exclusive for The Privacy Advisor.
