The General Data Protection Directive came into force on the 25th May 2018, and this, in addition to other current legal developments such as cases relating to the Privacy Shield, make the area of data protection rather fast-moving and interesting at the moment. SRE organisations are often involved in ensuring compliance with these initiatives. This talk will be an update on current events and analysis of how they may impact SREs in the immediate future.
