HIPAA
I would think it would not be any more complex than HIPAA we had to go through here in US.

DPO and "costl[iness]"
In my experience, the organizations that try to tack on data-privacy repsonsibilities to another, not directly related role and/or go cheap on this tend to do quite poorly with their privacy efforts -- especially as the person doing that job and several others for a very undermarket compensation level feels overwhelmed.

When it comes to compliance and risk management, you get what you pay for.

What Authority Does a Foreign Entity Have on a Sovereign Nation?
There's been quite a bit of chatter on the GDPR, but to date, I haven't seen anyone address the fundamental question of just exactly how the EU could enforce a regulation on an entity not under their rule.

Why would the United States agree to comply with a foreign regulation? If that's the case, does an edict by Kim Jong-Un have the same weight of enforcement, and if not, why not?

Sara's article has a very valid point of using this event to strengthen our own security programs, but in the end, it's not for the EU to dictate how we protect our data.

Going on different directions
Hi Sara, great article and summary of the upcoming GDPR requirements.

Looks to me that the EU and the US are going on opposite drections. The FCC is taking down privacy protections while the EU is increasing them.

It looks like Europe will play an important role in protecting privacy worldwide, as large corporations need to comply with the Regulation since they have "some" business in Europe.

And there will be no "grace" period after May 2018. In fact the GDPR is already in effect since May 2016. We are in the middle of the two-year grace period now!
