Taking stock of the GDPR one year on

During the European Commission’s General Data Protection Regulation event, ‘One year of GDPR application: taking stock in the EU and beyond’, FRA launched the ‘General Data Protection Regulation – one year on’ focus paper.

The paper was briefly introduced by Commissioner Věra Jourová during her opening speech, to a selected audience made of data protection specialists from public and private entities.

The paper feeds into the European Commission’s overall assessment of the GDPR’s impact.

In its findings, FRA highlighted the level of awareness and understanding of civil society organisations towards the GDPR, and flagged specific concerns and challenges.

The event took place on 13 June in Brussels.
