May 25 marks the first anniversary of GDPR (the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation came into effect on 2018). GDPR continues to have a significant impact on how every company collects, processes and handles personal data as well as individuals who now have control of their own data.
CMS is a full service law firm with sizeable data protection teams in all of the countries covered by this guide. We have advised many domestic and international companies over the past years, and so we decided to create this overview to shed some light on what has happened in GDPR during the past 12 months.

- GDPR facts & figures
