International data protection enforcement bulletin - April 2016

29 April 2016

Ruth Boardman, Ariane Mole

Welcome to the April issue of our pan-Bird & Bird data protection news update and enforcement summary.

Highlights in this issue are:

  • a speed read on developments in 7 Asian countries; and
  • an interesting French case on whether mandatory breach reporting precludes subsequent sanctions (an important topic given breach reporting under the GDPR). Spoiler alert: The Council of State rejected this argument.
