Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Jaime Barwig authored an article that was published by InsideCounsel outlining the details of the European Union's (EU) new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will take effect in 2018. As Jaime points out in the article, the GDPR will impact many companies doing business overseas as it "drastically extends the application of European data protection law [and] is intended to modernize data protection law in the EU and standardize it across the 28 EU member states." Jaime points out several key changes related to the GDPR, including:
- Expanded territorial scope
- Increased regulatory enforcement and fines
- Data breach notification requirements
- Data protection officers
