The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduces new data protection obligations for businesses while providing increased data protection rights for data subjects. The GDPR also significantly increases fines for non-compliance. Are you impacted by GDPR? DigiBC members were invited to a call with a legal expert on this very topic last month (huge thanks to EA Vancouver for making this available). For those of you who were unable to attend, here is an excellent resource list that was provided in the meeting.
Regulators’ Resources to Enforce - https://www.ft.com/content/aa156862-5f4f-11e8-9334-2218e7146b04
“A survey conducted by Reuters finds the majority of European regulators will not be ready for the EU General Data Protection Regulation. Of the 24 regulators polled, 17 said they either do not have the necessary funding or the proper powers in place to enforce the GDPR. “We’ve realized that our resources were insufficient to cope with the new missions given by the GDPR,” CNIL President Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin said. Regulators do not have the enforcement abilities needed for the new rules as their countries have not updated their laws to include the GDPR. The majority of respondents said they will react and investigate complaints based on merit, while a few said they would take a proactive approach.” https://iapp.org/news/a/eu-regulators-say-they-are-not-ready-for-gdpr/
