Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Author: European Union
This book contains the General Data Protection Regulation 2016 with official justifications. Legal provisions are accompanied by their recitals. Ideal for any practitioner and anyone interested in European data privacy. "The General Data Protection Regulation is the first directly applicable legal basis valid in all EU member states for processing personal data. It was concluded in April 2016 following a three-year coordination procedure, and replaces the data protection directive from 1995. The updates in the regulation include rights related to data portability and the right to be forgotten. There are changes with regard to data transmission to third-party countries, national supervisory agencies ("one-stop-shops") and their collaboration. But above all, the drastically harsher sanctions in response to violations should be an impetus for all affected companies to review their compliance measures. The European Parliament and the Council have granted a transitional deadline of two years for this purpose."
