While management’s commitment and overall progress towards compliance has been noticeable, organizations are still struggling to find reliable and official resources to help craft their privacy programs.
These legislative changes equate to the biggest overhaul of data protection legislation in 20 years -- it’s important to build the foundation of your compliance program using legitimate references to ensure alignment with the regulation to avoid the risk of enforcement by the Data Protection Authorities.
In addition to providing our own original GPDR content to assist, we wanted to share a few useful outside resources that can be referred to during your program development:
- General Data Protection Regulation (Full Text)
- European Commission 2018 reform of EU data protection rules
- Information Commissioners Office
- Bird and Bird
- IAPP Privacy Advisor
- IAPP Europe Data Protection Digest
As always, keep an eye out for new guidance issued by the above organizations that could simplify or illustrate real world application of the complex legislative concepts.
