Report raises alarm over weak enforcement of the EU GDPR on its second anniversary

The digital rights group Access Now has released a report which finds critical flaws in the enforcement of the EU’s  General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which celebrates its second anniversary. The report shows that national Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) have not yet been able to enforce the GDPR adequately due to a lack of resources and administrative hurdles. Beyond enforcement challenges, the report also explores how recent crises have impacted the protection of personal data in the EU, taking a close look at both Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Euractiv, a review of the GDPR is due to be presented by the European Commission on June 3.
