This fall, the European Data Protection Board (“EDPB”) published the draft “Guidelines 07/2020 on the concepts of controller and processor in the GDPR.” This development matters for CPW readers as even if you are an entity doing business in the United States, if you collect any personal data of people in the EU and meet other criteria you are required to comply with the GDPR. CPW will be re-reposting a four part series addressing the key concepts and issues covered.
