GDPR — Unlocking The Security Obligations

1 min

Venable partner Shannon Yavorsky published "GDPR — Unlocking The Security Obligations" in the July 20, 2017, issue of Law360. Here is an excerpt from the article:

While the lion’s share of attention (and cause for significant General Data Protection Regulation-related anxiety) has been focused on the antitrust-like fines for GDPR violations (which, as everyone knows by now, can be up to 4 percent of annual worldwide turnover or 20 million euros, whichever is higher), the security provisions in the GDPR also merit closer consideration. The GDPR recognizes that security is an essential feature of data protection, but like the Data Protection Directive, it provides little explicit guidance to organizations on how to implement a GDPR-compliant security program.
