Re: GDPR compliance
@Kelly: Well, to look at the other side of things, what's the total cost of compliance in each case? And how many years down the road will the ROI be realized?

Compare the recent Google fine of fifty-something million dollars. They probably have that much in the company swear jar.

Re: GDPR compliance
Well, trust me, a lot of the EU DPAs weren't exactly sitting on their laurels when it came to enforcement/policing.

It's more an issue of the difference between the EU's approach to these matters and the US's approach to these matters (the latter being much more laissez-faire by comparison).

Re: GDPR compliance
Seriously! All the angst seems to be replaced by some pretty good outcomes for those who comply, according to this new data. Yes it seems so but but I expect that being charging while we gain more experience. Big companies will find loopholes quite easily.

Re: GDPR compliance
Things might level out *slightly* in the next, say, 3-5 years, but it appears that all that hype was good for something. Makes sense. Companies will start firing back and try to win cases in the courts unfortunately.

Re: GDPR compliance
lot of organizations to do more than "check-the-box compliance" (which is what usually happens). This is really true. Most of the time showing that the box is checked is enough for many organizations.

Re: GDPR compliance
GDPR is the rare data-stewardship regulation I think one reason for that is it just not a regulation but the one that is enforced.

New study
a new study already shows that organizations that invested in data privacy to meet GDPR guidelines suffered fewer data breaches in the past year Positive results of a regulation? This certainly rarely happens. :-))

GDPR compliance
GDPR is the rare data-stewardship regulation that (1) caused so much panic and (2) was so in-depth and broadly encompassing that it compelled a lot of organizations to do more than "check-the-box compliance" (which is what usually happens).

Things might level out *slightly* in the next, say, 3-5 years, but it appears that all that hype was good for something.
