GDPR 3 years on – The greatest hits (and misses)
More than three years have passed since the GDPR applied and a lot has happened in the world of data protection during that time – fines, class actions, court challenges and more. We give our “playlist” of the greatest hits (and misses). Our previous article marking 12 months of GDPR had a cinematic theme. Now, we’re giving the three-year anniversary of GDPR a musical twist.

Brexit: “If you liked it, you should[n’t] have put a [referendum] on it…”
The United Kingdom left the European Union and now has its own data protection regime in the form of the Data Protection Act 2018 and the UK GDPR. For now, this is largely based on the EU GDPR but we expect further divergence in future as the UK seeks to establish itself as a favourable place for overseas companies to do business.
