GDPR: Mission Complete!
Irish MedTech Association Meeting of Minds Digital Health Conference
On May 25, 2023, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) celebrated its fifth anniversary. When the GDPR was adopted, its supporters foretold that it would bring a new era of harmonised data protection rules and enforcement throughout the EU. It would end purely administrative compliance requirements like data processing registrations in favor of genuinely holding organisations accountable for their data protection practices. Faegre Drinker Partner Peter Blenkinsop is leading a panel discussion exploring whether the GDPR has accomplished these objectives, with a focus on how the medical technology industry has been impacted by the GDPR, the challenges that are keeping medtech data protection officers awake at night, and the direction of interpretation and enforcement.
