Only one year into GDPR and we’ve seen 95,000+ complaints to the European Commission, 255 cross-border investigations and several high level cases — including a $50 million fine to Google for lack of disclosure.
As regulatory enforcements intensify across EU jurisdictions, what strategies should organizations employ to more effectively reduce risk and fines?

Significant trends in GDPR behaviours, such as increasing Subject Access Requests
