The GDPR will bring in sweeping changes to the obligations on data processors, whether on site or in the cloud. We look at the new compliance points for processors, particularly with reference to the cloud. We also consider the impact in Germany which has had stricter requirements around data processors than the UK for some time, and at special obligations in France on data processors of health data.
Global Data Hub considers whether the proposed General Data Protection Regulation really delivers a harmonised EU data protection regime. We look particularly at the core issues of the GDPR's territorial reach, the 'one stop shop' mechanism and the new enforcement regime.
After four years of negotiations, the text of the General Data Protection Regulation was agreed at the end of 2015 and is expected to be adopted shortly. We will then have two years before the legislation comes into force. Taylor Wessing will be exploring the full detail of the GDPR on the Global Data Hub over the coming year but this month, we consider the headlines and our international data protection experts give their reactions.
