The General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR) (EU) 2016/679 of April 27, 2016, which comes into force in May 2018, will introduce major changes to the law on the processing of personal data in the European Union. Over the next twelve (12) months, several European Union law firms we work very closely with will join us in providing you with more information on the GDPR. Different themes will be tackled month by month to help you prepare for the GDPR deadline. 

Part #1 of this GDPR Series is brought to you by FIDAL, a French law firm. Subsequent blog entries in this series will be brought to you by the law firms of Graf von Westphalen (Germany), Mills & Reeve (United Kingdom) and VanBenthem & Keulen (Netherlands) as well as Robinson+Cole (United States).
