GDPR Enforcement: Is it really about the fines?

In the lead up to the General Data Protection Regulation, so much of the focus was on fines and regulatory audits, and while that may have been a spark that lit a fire for many privacy organizations, it is becoming increasingly clear that data subjects themselves will have an enforcement role as well, rather than the regulators acting alone.

Could data protection officers (DPOs) conceivably be exposed to staggering personal liability for data protection violations by their employers or clients?

Why should a DPO be global?

The General Data Protection Regulation introduces a general EU-wide obligation to appoint a formal data protection officer.

This role is responsible for the data protection (or privacy) management program within data controllers or data processors in order to satisfy regulators and assure that organizations remain in compliance with GDPR over time.

DPO Confessional: Think globally, but direct market locally

Applying the consent basis to data processing has territorial implications. Unfortunately, the EU’€™s General Data Protection Regulation contains some ambiguity regarding the proper basis to choose for the purposes of direct marketing -€” the two leading options seem to be legitimate interest or consent.

The Next Hot Area Of Law: Privacy

The demand for lawyers who understand privacy is high — and will only get higher in the years ahead.

My view of privacy law’s bright future has only increased from attending this year’s Global Privacy Summit, hosted by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) in Washington, D.C. The Summit draws roughly 3,500 attendees each year, and its opening session, held this morning in the cavernous main hall of the Washington Convention Center, was packed — a standing-room-only crowd, to hear the keynotes of Monica Lewinsky, who needs no introduction, and Jon Ronson.
