The European Commission has recently released a new website providing guidance on the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) implementation requirements. The website provides a plethora of resources both to industry looking to become compliant with GDPR standards as well as to citizens looking to understand their data protection rights. Highlights of the website include a resource library containing guidance on application of the GDPR; an infographic that explains the core requirements of the regulation; as well as a rules for business repository which provides definitions, examples and reference documents for GDPR terminology. With almost 100 days remaining until the GDPR becomes enforceable on May 25, 2018, this new resource is a timely addition for those seeking to comply with the regulation.
For additional information concerning GDPR compliance, please consult C&M’s European General Data Protection Regulation website here. For further counsel, please contact your local C&M representative or one of the attorneys listed above.
