A guide to the insurability of GDPR fines across Europe: the price of data security


Zepos & Yannopoulos, partners of the EuroCloud CPC network, participated in a multi jurisdictional exercise organised by the international law firm DLA Piper and AON, which addresses the local laws on the issue of insurability of non-GDPR regulatory fines, GDPR-fines and insurability of costs associated with GDPR non-compliance.

The General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR), effective from 25 May 2018, revolutionises the data protection regime and significantly affects how organisations worldwide collect, use, manage, protect, and share personal data that comes into their possession.

The guide, which can be briefly explored below, provides an invaluable way of understanding and managing the impact of GDPR in an organisation, whilst supporting stakeholders to make informed decisions.
