Who’s Afraid Of GDPR?

A law is only as effective as its means of enforcement and the means of enforcement of GDPR looks ineffective,.

If enforcement were in the hands of some pro-active, massively funded EC agency like the Competition Commission then  it would be fearsome.

As it is, GDPR is being left to national governments to enforce and governments have given the responsibility for enforcement to minimally  resourced agencies.

In the UK this agency is the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) which has made such a balls up of the Cambridge Analytica investigation – signalling days in advance that it was going to raid their offices giving them ample time to remove or delete incriminating information.

With the ICO the enforcer for GDPR, we have nothing to fear from GDPR and nothing to gain from it.
