The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation went into effect on May 25, 2018, prioritizing data privacy concerns for in-house counsel around the world.

GDPR

Here’s something that will make you feel just a little bit older: the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming up on the one-year mark this May. How fast the last 365 days came and went probably has a direct correlation to if and how much you were fined, but nevertheless the paper anniversary seems a good time for a checkup.

The GDPR was instituted in part to provide some regulatory cohesion to the data privacy landscape that rolls across the EU’s 28 member states. Since irony apparently doesn’t observe international borders, over the last year things have actually started trending in the opposite direction, with individual jurisdictions making the most of whatever enforcement latitude the GDPR affords them.
