The European Commission publishes GDPR report


On 24 June, the European Commission published its evaluation report of the GDPR, just over two years after the GDPR become applicable.

Perhaps unsurprisingly the Commission’s report indicates that the GDPR has met most of its objectives, and describes the GDPR is a “success story”. However, the report recognises that more work needs to be done and notably says that there is a need for “vigorous enforcement”.


This suggests that the Commission considers that at least some regulators are not taking action or enough action and it is reasonable to assume from this that we will see an increasing number of fines being imposed in the future.

We were looking for a virtual DPO service that offered all of the benefits of a fully qualified data protection lawyer, without the overheads of an in-house hire. The DPaaS solution from norm. has been invaluable in helping us to ensure we respect the integrity of our customers’ personal information, while using it to continue to deliver differentiated products and services which support our growing customer base.

CSaaS allows me to step away from multi-vendor management as the Security Operations Centre coordinates all of the technology for me.

The speed of your Data Protection Officer’s response was very impressive – it was far quicker than I would have expected even from an in-house DPO
