GDPR guidance… simple informative text

By | Thursday August 4th, 2016

I have found at this link a guidance to GDPR. It is written in Italian because it has been provided by the Italian DPA.

It is high level, non technical, simple and informative. Is uses a lot of graphics and address the general public. I think is necessary to communicate to EU citizens the value of this new law. It is part of being part of Europe; one of the advantages.

I am sure there are other similar documents in all languages; it would be nice to know the links and put those links as comments in this post.

I list here just the titles of the 12 pages and I translate them approximately

  • Citizens are more guaranteed
  • Information clear and complete
  • Consent, even on line
  • Limitations to automatic processing (ok I agree this is not clear!)
  • Right to be forgotten
  • Data portability
  • Transfer to third countries
  • Data breach communication
  • News for businesses and organizations
  • Same rules for every EU country
  • Approach based on risk assessment that rewards the most responsible parties
  • Simplifications for entities that provide more certainty and promote self-regulation systems
