I agree with this Nick Wallace's thoughts on GDPR wholeheartedly. Whilst I applaud any efforts to protect data privacy rights and prevent unwanted direct marketing overload, I do question the sense of such a huge change and the costs that will burden us all in attempting to comply with its strictures.
Many law firms have written many articles, hosted many seminars and informed their clients about what GDPR means for them legally. I wonder how many have prepared themselves for the future changes? When many mid-sized law firms do not even have formal CRM systems or e-marketing systems it will be interesting to see how they manage to comply with the regulations themselves.
Overzealous EU data protection regulations are more likely to take your job than a robot The EU’s incoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), its attempt to strengthen and unify data protection laws, looks like Keynesianism’s evil twin: while Keynes’s idea would benefit the unemployed with paying jobs and companies with bottled government cash, the GDPR looks set to create pointless work, destroy productive jobs, stifle innovation, and cost everybody money. Brexit will do nothing to spare the UK economy from this, because digital minister Matthew Hancock has already said the government intends to amend UK data protection law to mirror the GDPR. This is one rule that both the EU and Britain really should ditch. requirements of the GDPR. GDPR.
