Is GDPR still a Requirement?

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) applies to all companies based in the EU and those with EU citizens as customers. For UK businesses, the Brexit Withdrawal agreement won’t make any changes to the need to comply during the transition period, and nor will the requirements change for businesses who trade within the EU. Furthermore, the UK is committed to maintaining the high standards of the GDPR ( and the government plans to incorporate it into UK law after Brexit. The current GDPR regulations came into effect o 25 May 2018. It is interesting to consider enforcement of GDPR regulations, and the GDPR Enforcement Tracker website provides s a list and overview of fines and penalties which data protection authorities within the EU have imposed under GDPR. First, I have to say I am not a legal professional, and second this is a cursory analysis. At the time of writing, the database contains 16 cases of fines and penalties where the summary contains the word “web,” including a case in December 2019 regarding anoperator of a website for legal news had the privacy statement only available in English, although it was also addressed to a Dutch and French speaking audience. 5 cases where the summary contains the word “email,” including a case in 2019 where Vodaphone sent a marketing email to a large number of recipients (clients) without using the blind copy feature. The initial fine of EUR 60.000 was reduced to EUR 36.000. On the one hand, this is not a huge number of prosecutions for non-compliance, but combine this risk with the increased sensitivity of personal data processing and awareness of this as an issue, and GDPR compliance becomes not just a statutory requirement, but also good business sense.
