Thought-Leadership Spotlight: Travis LeBlanc and others on GDPR
By Ronald J. Coleman
Episode 2 speaker Travis LeBlanc contributed to a piece in July 2021 entitled “GDPR Three Years on the Road: The 10 Key Developments You Should Know”. The piece states, among other things:
“Looking at the past three years of enforcement by the national data protection authorities, we have seen some kind of evolution in the enforcement area:
- From June to the end of 2018: National authorities were setting up and reorganizing their teams to align their internal structure and resources with their new roles under the GDPR. This resulted in very few enforcements
- Year 2019: The enforcement increased in 2019, but it consisted mainly of small fines and small companies being targeted
- Year 2020: National data protection authorities started imposing very high monetary penalties, but many of these were appealed
- Year 2021: This year, we have started to see more mature and sophisticated enforcement decisions”.
