The EU General Data Protection Regulation has been in effect for five months, and yet there has not been much progress on the certification front. Companies are waiting to see what form certification will look like under Articles 42 and 43 of the GDPR, and tech vendors are coming out with solutions to help organizations display their GDPR compliance efforts in the interim.
While GDPR certifications have not yet appeared, plenty of regulatory bodies have come out with guidance on the subject. With all the guidance that’s emerged from global regulatory bodies, there remains controversy surrounding GDPR certifications. Under Article 42 of the GDPR, certification mechanisms will be issued to data controllers and processors.
