Don’t relax just because some EU regulators aren’t ready for GDPR

In May 25th the European Union’s tough privacy law known as the General Data Protection Regulation takes effect, with some experts predicting turmoil because many businesses in and outside the union who collect personal data on EU residents aren’t entirely ready. However, regulators aren’t ready either, suggests latest surveys.

Good news for businesses worried they may get hammered within 24 hours of the law coming into effect? No, says, Canadian privacy expert Ann Cavoukian: “It’s not that Europe isn’t ready for the GDPR, it’s just that they’re under-resourced, as is the case in most jurisdictions.”
