The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is the most comprehensive – and complex – data privacy regulation in the world. As companies prepare for the GDPR to go into force on May 25, 2018, there continues to be a great deal of confusion regarding the requirements of the GDPR.
To help address that confusion, our firm’s Data Privacy and Security team has published a multi-part series discussing the questions most frequently asked about the GDPR. You can find a link to each of the top 10 questions and answers (in the order of popularity) below:
- Does the GDPR data breach notification provision cover the same type of data as United States data breach notification provisions?
- What Does It Mean To Be “Established” In The EU?
- Is a Service Provider’s Privacy Shield Certification Good Enough?
- Are the Standard Contractual Clauses Enough?
- Are Work Email Addresses and Business Contact Information Considered “Personal Data?”
- If I receive a right to be forgotten request from an employee do I have to honor it?
- Are Companies Always Required to Get Opt-In Consent?
- Does the GDPR apply if my company has no employees or offices in the EU?
- Do Companies Always Have To Provide a Privacy Notice If They Collect Information About Someone From a Third Party?
