GDPR Insurance
2/21/2019 10:31:30 AM by Adam Brogden
Wouldn’t it be good if you could just buy a GDPR insurance policy? Imagine simply paying a fee to make sure you don’t ever receive a fine from the ICO. The bad news is that I don't think such a policy exists or would work.

How to do a DPIA?
1/31/2019 3:49:35 PM by Adam Brogden
