CU Professor in the NYT: The GDPR is a Big, Confusing Mess

University of Colorado professor Alison Cool has a piece in today’s New York Times  that might be of interest to companies struggling with Europe’s new data protection law, the General Data Protection Regulation.  She describes the law as “staggeringly complex” and problematic because “No one understands the GDPR.”  She also relays that many data managers and legal scholars doubt whether absolute compliance is even possible. 

Even if it is true that absolute compliance may not be possible, efforts must be made to comply with the law’s far-reaching requirements.  Companies that choose not to comply may face fines and onerous regulatory actions.

If you or your company have questions regarding GDPR compliance, please contact Rudy E. Verner at BHGR Law at 303-402-1600.
