The EU General Data Protection Regulation empowers data subjects to seek judicial relief for damages and file administrative complaints with supervisory authorities. The GDPR’s consistency mechanisms — encouraging supervisory authorities to cooperate and agree on infringement decisions, empowering the European Data Protection Board for dispute resolution, making final decisions binding — are designed to ease burdens on controllers and processors doing business across the EU’s Member States by offering more efficient enforcement solutions. But what that will look like in practice has been tough to visualize, until now. This tool created by IAPP Westin Fellow Anna Myers, CIPM, CIPP/US, consolidates the GDPR’s enforcement provisions into an interactive map, illustrating how supervisory authorities may pursue complaints administratively. Editor’s Note: For a more comprehensive look at GDPR violations, take a look at the final installment of the IAPP’s Top 10 operational impacts of the GDPR series.
