What does this cover?

The latest round of trilogue negotiations on the GDPR started on 29 September. Discussions on Chapters II (Principles) and III (Rights of Data Subject) have been put on hold as negotiators were unable to reach agreement on number of issues. They will resume mid-October.

The current negotiations will instead focus on Chapter IV (Processor and liability) which will cover data breach notifications, Privacy Impact assessments and the appointment of data protection officers.

What action could be taken to manage risks that may arise from this development?

None - this is for interest only.
