SUMMARY

According to this study, big corporations have invested large sums in data security and preparation for GDPR and are now waiting for the regulation's advisory views.  

This report on security is comprised of five articles on how businesses are adjusting to data and privacy regulations. The first piece notes that companies and law firms and regulators are still adapting to the new privacy and data protection rules imposed by the General Data Protection Regulation. As a consequence of the European regulation, U.S. lawmakers are introducing various state laws that are complicating the situation more.

According to this study, big corporations have invested large sums in data security and preparation for GDPR and are now waiting for the regulation's advisory views. Some companies, on the other hand, are still adjusting to the new rules, while others have done nothing to adjust perhaps too busy to get involved in an expensive data privacy projects.

The second article reports about the recent rise of biometric data privacy lawsuits. The paper explains that Illinois was the first US state to have a law on biometric data privacy which includes fingerprints, retinal scans, and facial recognition. 

Another section of this study is focused on the notion of informed consent that is described as key to the success of any privacy regime. The document also mentions that a few high-profile lawsuits and stricter privacy legislation in the state of California could generate a wave of class-action litigation in technology sectors and fields reliant on personal information.
