The overhaul of the EU’s data protection rules, a crucial foundation for a successful Digital Single Market, is finally regaining momentum on its way to final adoption. The General Data Protection Regulation will have wide-ranging implications for citizens and businesses alike. The challenge is to give the citizens control over their data without impeding a growing data-run economy to take off in the European Union.

In our latest snapshot Marzena Rembowski and Jan Hueckmann from FTI Consulting’s ICT practice consider how these new rules will have a far reaching impact on all businesses worldwide.
