GDPR + e-Privacy = :-(

At some point in your life, you’ve probably had the experience of meeting someone who you feel you ought to like but, no matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to gel with them – awkward silences creep into conversations and you find that, while you may share similar values, the ways you each go about approaching things are just different.

What does ePrivacy look like under new presidency?

Bulgaria took over the rolling presidency of the EU on Jan. 1, and, although an overly ambitious May deadline has been abandoned, moved quickly to get the ball rolling. The Commission’s proposal for the ePrivacy regulation was published a year ago, and despite much political wrangling, the European Parliament also reached its position before the end of 2017. Now everyone is waiting on the Council (made up of 28 national representatives) to come up with its view before so-called trilogue negotiations can begin. Some say it’s easy to see now that May date to coincide with GDPR implementation was too optimistic.

Top Data Governance Issues from 2017 and What to Watch in 2018

Having advised companies on privacy and data security issues for the past 20 years, it is always interesting to consider the previous year’s most significant industry events. In truth, we continue to press for resolution of the same issues year-after-year sometimes as to new technologies or applications. While the answer may be evasive, we moved further along the path of clarity in 2017 and will make further progress in 2018.

ePrivacy Regulation Trilogue Negotiations Pushed back to Fall 2018

About this time last January, the European Parliament released its proposal for a new ePrivacy Regulation. The intent of the ePrivacy Regulation is to replace the current ePrivacy regime – which consists of an ePrivacy Directive and a patchwork of local implementing legislation – with a uniform set of directly-applicable EU-wide rules. Since the Parliament released its ePrivacy Regulation draft, both the European Council and the European Parliament have reviewed it and released their own revised drafts.

Privacy in 2018: Expect the unexpected

Making predictions for the year ahead is possibly as desirable as unreliable. In a world of unlimited data and advanced science, it would be tempting to think that the future is already written. Algorithms and artificial intelligence will show us what lies ahead with immaculate accuracy. Or perhaps not. At least not yet. To say that the world is in turmoil is an understatement and the same is true of the world of privacy and data protection, which makes predicting the future particularly tricky. But since the urge to plan, budget and prepare for what is likely to happen next is so real, now is a good time to pause, reflect about what’s going on, and make some predictions for 2018.
