We have updated our GDPR Guide for Businesses to take account of new EU regulatory guidance. The guide is a ‘living document‘, which we will expand as more regulatory guidance is published.

The EU Article 29 Working Party has published guidance on a number of key changes introduced by the GDPR, including: administrative fines, mandatory breach notification, data protection officers, lead supervisory authority, data portability, profiling, and data protection impact assessments.

More regulatory guidance is expected shortly, as well as publication of the new Irish Data Protection Bill, which will give effect to, and provide for derogations from, the GDPR.

With only 6 months left until the GDPR comes into force, it is essential to start making preparations now, if you have not already done so.
