2019 IAPP-EY Governance Report reveals how companies are addressing DSAR compliance challenges

(Nov 6, 2019) Complying with data subject access requests continues to be a challenging area of EU General Data Protection Regulation implementation.

This challenge is compounded as companies must figure o... Read More

These commission findings relate to the independ... Read More

'Privacy in US Law Schools Update: An IAPP Westin Center Report'

(Oct 22, 2019) In September 2019, the IAPP released the first-of-its-kind “Privacy in US Law Schools” report reflecting an analysis of privacy education at U.S. law schools accredited by the American Bar Association.

Certainly, Article 3 on territorial scope would be a good choice. Article 6 on lawfulness of processing would also be a strong pick.
