God knows how much money it's costing across Europe.

I've had charities spending money sending me letters asking if they can still contact me. It's like something out of a Magnus Mills book.

It's eventually going to lead to more payouts than PPI. The defence of "terms and conditions" will not pass the test in court.

Computer validation to Sarbanes-Oxley to GDPR. It's the latest fad. Some load of crap that consultants rip you off for

Don’t think people get pay outs. Think regulators just take fines.

I thought you were more involved in hi-tech processing/construction?
Changed direction recently?
It's an absolute goldmine. The T&Cs associated with being a medium to large organisation's DPO are ridiculous (but also bloody great) :lol:

Only if people bring actions (which they will). Eventually we will get paid for "our" data.

Also it will be the scope and what is being used / or even available to the companies. The best example I can think of will be television manufacturers, what data do Samsung take from our new smart tv's.

Pretty sure as it stands it’s just regulator fines. Not individuals. But if you’re right, no doubt there will be PPI type ambulance chasers evolving out of this.

I just know it was used as an excuse for all sorts of shite. Xxxx can't be approved because of sox. Constantly being audited by 20 something consultants. What a load of crap

How does one invest in such funds?

I’m assuming not retail available else it would’ve crossed my path

Unfortunately true - no politician will stand up and say it is an unnecessary burden now.
Whoever drafted this clearly believes every company has the resources of a FTSE 100 company.
And anyone who says you've been warned is clearly not in a position to have to deal with this.

We've been compliant for about a year now. Idiots who leave it until a few weeks before the implementation deadline deserve little sympathy.

This.

And it is not extremely difficult. In Romania the previous legislation resemble much so it's just a matter of fine tuning and some additional procedures to be put in place.

Well done. Compliance is not really the issue, costs of compliance are what matter. It is nothing to do with idiocy and everything to do with the burden placed on smaller companies.

Does your company / work area in the company do business with that EU? If not, then that’s probably why you haven’t heard about it.
It’s mightly big deal here for companies in the EU doing business, and non EU companies doing business with companies in the EU. It’s all about data protection and how companies deal with it.

Correct.

Data capture, data storage, data controller, data processor, consent, the right to withdraw consent, privacy statements, disclosure statements..................................

I like GDPR. :thumbup:

The penalties for non-compliance 4% of annual turnover or fines up to €20,000,000.00.

Japanese have adopted GDPR. Even post-Brexit U.K. have said that they will conform.

GDPR will be adopted worldwide and it is here to stay :thumbup:
