Wherefore art thou GDPR?
Some EU supervisory authorities are voicing dissatisfaction with enforcement of GDPR to date.
“After nearly one and a half years we must concede that we have a huge problem with the enforcement of cross border processing especially by globally acting companies,” says a spokesperson for the Hamburg data protection authority authority, referring to cases that concern web users in more than one country. “It is absolutely unsatisfactory to see that the biggest alleged data protection violations of the last 15 months with millions of individuals [concerned] are far away from being sanctioned.”
Politico provides an in depth overview of complaints against failure to enforce, specifically by the supervisory authorities of Ireland and Luxembourg, and what can be done about this.
