HAPPY 3RD BIRTHDAY GDPR!! Enforcement Trends Past, Present & Future w/Jonathan Armstrong of Cordery


Today the GDPR turns THREE YEARS OLD! They grow up so fast, don’t they?

In honor of this milestone, one of our favorite recurring guests, Jonathan Armstrong, Partner with Cordery out of London, joins us on The Guide to discuss GDPR enforcement trends past, present and future.

Jonathan is a renown global data privacy, cross-border data transfer, risk, compliance and technology expert. There are few professionals who understand GDPR enforcement issues as well as our friend Mr. Armstrong.

After some celebration, some teleportation, some cake and some crooning, Jonathan takes us on a veritable explanatory tour de force. Throughout our discussion, he pinpoints trends within specific member states, macro-regional patterns and EU-wide developments by weaving together specific elements of law, technology, history and geopolitics – and we have some fun at the same time.

Jam packed full of specific events, curious developments, decisions, stories, actions, answers and questions, every substantive minute of this video offers key insights into how the GDPR has been implemented and enforced across the EU (we talk UK GDPR too). If you can only watch one part, I would recommend checking out Jonathan’s overview of FIVE KEY GDPR ENFORCEMENT TRENDS at 07:22.
