🧯 Keeping up to date feels impossible...
And I'm sure you can relate to the challenges DPOs and other privacy and data protection professionals face these days, as described below. This is why I've curated GDPR news for years on LinkedIn - and the reason for creating this newsletter.
Subscribe to get carefully selected news with my (sometimes grumpy) perspective and key takeaways, as well as updates on Grumpy GDPR 🎙️ episodes - with tidbits not shared elsewhere!
Years of leading complex, cross-country projects has been invaluable in my GDPR work (both my own and with clients). No way could I have run this one-woman-show on this level without solid structure, templates (GDPR Audits, policies, projects), swipefiles (200+ records ROPA, customer success emails) and processes/systems (vendor GDPR due diligence, risk assessment frameworks)! I'll also be sharing some of this going forward.
Do you help others with the GDPR?
Anyone providing GDPR advice should have extensive practical, hands-on experience with implementing the actual legal requirements.
- digging through business operations and involving people from all departments to fill out ROPAs, conduct risk assessments and DPIAs, Article 5 checks, assess territorial scope, joint vs sole controllership, if a DPO is really required, write privacy notices...
That's just the starting point.
With the fire-hose of constant regulatory changes, GDPR practitioners are overwhelmed and it often feels impossible to keep up.
And the pressure to be an expert has never been greater.
Not only are there numerous DPA decisions and court rulings from across the EEA (~2,500 in the GDPRhub so far!), the EDPB and EDPS regularly publish new guidance (and don't forget about several WP29 docs still in play!), opinions, recommendations and studies and the CJEU is busy like never before.
Not to mention all the new relevant EU regulations, acts and directives (ePrivacy, DSA, DMA, AI, clinical trials, marketing etc.). And that's only from inside of Europe - if you run global operations you also have CCPA, PIPL, PDPA, LGPD etc. to account for...
After sharing actively on LinkedIn for the past years, my peers tell me that they appreciate my curated content of both big news and interesting tidbits from across the EEA.
I deep-dive into CJEU rulings, WP29, EDPB and EDPS documents, DPA decisions and court rulings, including having translated nearly 70 cases for the GDPRhub on a volunteer basis since 2020 (and regularly do grumpy podcasts about these).
Combined with my practical, hands-on experience having worked directly with close to 100 organizations with all aspects of the GDPR including managing large implementation projects for higher education institutions - I'm confident I have valuable experiences to share with you.
For years I've shared these experiences with our community. Some insights, though, don't always fit open platforms - like some tidbits from the Grumpy GDPR podcast recordings. 😆
