EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is now in effect in all EU member states and is enforceable. With possible penalties of up to €20 million or 4% of global annual turnover for non-compliance, companies have a strong incentive to dedicate significant resources to work on regulatory compliance. Choosing the right approach to compliance can have an incredible benefit and save considerable resources, while the opposite can have disastrous long term effects. For example, Google was recently fined over $50 million by the French data privacy supervisory authority (CNIL) in connection with its scattered, incomprehensible privacy statements and invalid processes to gather consent from French users.
We are closely monitoring individual EU Member States data privacy enforcement actions to ensure our clients benefit of updated, cutting edge advice.
Our California based data privacy attorneys offer a holistic approach to data privacy compliance and enforcement by leveraging cross-industry global experience, which translates into cost efficiency and transparency. We would be delighted to speak with you about your data privacy program.
How is GDPR compliance achieved?
The General Data Protection Regulation came into effect on May 25th, 2018. The GDPR is the result of the EU’s reform of its privacy laws, replacing the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize EU member states’ data privacy laws. Whilst the GDPR impacts to a certain degree every aspect of how the right to data protection is perceived and enforced, EU member states supervisory authorities and the European Data Protection Board (former Article 29 Working Party) have taken steps to clarify how compliance can be achieved. However, several notions introduced by GDPR remain to be clearly interpreted and applied in practice.
Our GDPR blog discusses some of the most interesting concepts introduced by this complex regulation.

California's response to GDPR signed into law
California Gov. Jerry Brown just signed into law a new piece of privacy related legislation, which is set to become operative on January 1, 2020. The law passed both chambers without opposition and represents a reaction to the use of advanced technologies and algorithms to create customer profiles used for targeted marketing. Pursuant to this law, consumers will be provided with significantly more control over their personal information and with a modified enforcement mechanism, which includes a right to private action and statutory damages.
While not as comprehensive or far-reaching as the GDPR, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 will affect how companies doing business in California process consumer data, and will likely accelerate US Companies' compliance efforts. Learn more
