Insight briefing - EU General Data Protection Regulation: one year on

This insight briefing examines whether the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has delivered on its aims of enhanced protection and greater harmonisation of data protection rules. It also asks if the GDPR is compatible with insurers’ need to innovate for the benefit consumers.

The European Commission is currently taking stock of stakeholders’ experiences of implementing the GDPR to prepare its report on the evaluation and review of the Regulation, due by May 2020. The briefing has been published ahead of a Commission event on the GDPR’s anniversary which takes place on 13 June.

The briefing highlights the positive effects that the introduction of new rights has had on consumers and how this helps insurers to build and maintain trustworthy relationships with consumers.
