Reporting from the first nine months of GDPR provides a look into the future of US regulation. The ability to focus user issues in one agency for 31 countries gives
an insight into the breathe of the problem, which is likely to be similar in the US.
Notably, the number of data breaches reported in the first month of GDPR regs was 1,700 – referred to a “massive increase” from prior periods. The monthly number has settled down to about 400.
As we reported previously, regulation in the US is moving state by state rather than from the feds, which will make it harder to suss out an insight into trends, into the progress we are making against privacy volations. Source: The Register; European Data Protection Board
