Hunton & Williams Partner Aaron Simpson Offers GDPR Guidance

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#GDPR--In a recent webcast, Hunton & Williams LLP’s London office managing
partner Aaron
Simpson
discusses the specific preparations companies must
take in order to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation
(GDPR) before next year.



Accountability, expanded data subject rights, breach notification,
sanctions and data transfer mechanisms are a few requirements that
Simpson explores in detail. He reminds companies that, in the coming
year, it will be very important to “monitor…and stay aware of the
guidance being produced by regulators,” but also that the guidance is
not a substitute for the specific preparations that each business will
need to perform in order to comply with the GDPR.
