Omer Tene discusses GDPR's strengths and weaknesses
Now that the EU General Data Protection Regulation has been in effect for two years, IAPP Vice President and Chief Knowledge Officer Omer Tene takes stock of what's worth celebrating and what remains concerning about "this formidable European project" in this post for Privacy Perspectives.
'The GDPR at Two: Expert Perspectives'
To celebrate the GDPR's second anniversary, the IAPP reached out to leading voices in the data protection community to reflect about the past, present and future of the regulation. Commentators include Gabriela Zanfir-Fortuna, Ruth Boardman, Eduardo Ustaran, CIPP/E, Marit Hansen, Stephen Kai-yi Wong, Lee Bygrave, Lokke Moerel, Bojana Bellamy, CIPP/E, Peter Swire, Sophie Kwasny and Graham Greenleaf.
A dive into DPAs' 'work on the ground'
As part of the GDPR's mandate, the European Commission must submit an evaluation report and review to the European Parliament and Council. To help, the commission sent EU data protection authorities a questionnaire, and the European Data Protection Board released a synthesis of DPA responses. This IAPP white paper looks into the resources available to DPAs, as well as the budget and staffing levels to provide a snapshot into DPAs' "work on the ground."
