Dramatic Increase in French Privacy Complaints Since GDPR

The French data protection authority CNIL has received 3,767 data protection complaints since EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on May 25, 2018. According to CNIL this is a 64 percent increase compared to the same four-month period last year. CNIL also reported that it has received 600 data breach notifications during the same period. CNIL is in the process of developing new French regulatory tools under GDPR. It has already developed and proposed strict new biometric privacy regulations, and has nearly finalized a certification program for company Data Protection Officers. It is now developing regulations related to customer relations, human resources, and health monitoring.

Putting it Into Practice: This report from the CNIL suggests that it will be following with enforcement actions in the near future.
