From EU GDPR to CCPA and Beyond – Enforcement Actions Dominate the Landscape

From continued fallout and business ramifications after the passage of EU GDPR, to the looming enactment of the CCPA in California and the potential for other states to enact similar laws, the tumultuous privacy and data security landscape shows no sign of simmering down. As consumers continue to be ever more cautious – and knowledgeable – about their rights and corporate responsibility, when it comes to their personal information, companies and the law firms that advise them are scrambling to understand shifting priorities and avoid costly, reputation-damaging fallout from security breaches, ransomware, and other threats.

What is the EU General Data Protection Regulation?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) creates a single EU-wide law on data protection intended to increase legal certainty for individuals, businesses, and data protection authorities and to contribute to the success of the EU’s Digital Single Market. Of particular significance is the extraterritorial application of the GDPR, where a non-EU-based business will become subject to the GDPR when it is processing personal data of EU individuals as a result of offering goods or services to such individuals or monitoring their behavior. The GDPR introduces significant new data protection requirements and rights for data subjects, as well as enforcement powers for DPAs, including fines of up to 4% of annual worldwide turnover or 20 million euros, whichever is greater. The GDPR entered into force May 25, 2018.
