Personal Data: the new oil and its toxic legacy under the General Data Protection Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulation, which came into force on 25 May 2018, represents a seminal moment in the history of European privacy rights and data protection. The GDPR ushers in significant financial sanctions, rights of compensation and group litigation mechanisms.

During the past 18 months, DAC Beachcroft has conducted a study into how these GDPR measures will change the compensation and regulatory sanctions regime across Member States. Contributions were obtained from data protection experts across all 28 Member States.

The report offers insights into which European countries will face the greatest changes as a result of the GDPR. The report also reveals that over 80% of countries expect compensation claims for data protection breaches to increase from May 2018. Click here to download a copy of the report.
