The European Commission – Data Protection provides links to EC data protection policies, information and services. The Commission provides the official GDPR text in multiple languages, describes the European Data Protection Board and its responsibilities, provides detailed guidance and resources on data transfers outside the EU, and some focused discussion of the changes to the EU data protection rules as a result of GDPR, including:
- Rights for Citizens
- Rules for Business and Organizations
- What is Personal Data?
- What Does GDPR Govern?
- What Constitutes Data Processing?
- What Are Data Protection Authorities?
The Commission provides an interactive infographic with a countdown clock that is a glossy overview that could be useful for a very high level overview of GDPR and its implications to companies. Recently, on March 7, 2018, the Commission updated their Overview of the National Data Protection Authorities where you can find links to each DPA. Note that many of the DPAs provide their resources in their county’s language, and not in English.
