More than a year after the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force, with all the associated excitement and activity, things are now back to normal. Regulators refrained from making a flood of enquiries and imposing fines. Having said that, companies should not feel complacent. Many questions related to the GDPR remain unanswered, especially with regard to marketing and the upcoming ePrivacy Regulation. In addition, the authorities are likely to step up their investigation of complaints and scrutiny of data protection violations. CMS assists its clients in meeting the often complex requirements of data protection and privacy law. Backed by an in-depth understanding of digitisation and its legal implications, we are ideally positioned to advise our clients on avoiding the pitfalls around GDPR.
