Jonathan Armstrong and Tom Fox return for another episode of the award-winning Life with GDPR. Data protection has become a priority for many authorities with the French regulator, CNIL,  recently issuing fines and penalties to Microsoft for not complying with the data protection laws. Changes were made to their practices in March 2022, and similar action was taken against Google and Amazon. In this episode, we discuss the regulatory landscape for cookies which has become difficult for businesses to maneuver, requiring board-level oversight of data privacy, data protection, and data security. Together, these measures are deemed necessary in order to mitigate the biggest risks to organizations. Max Schrems and his pressure group were two of the key adjutants and had filed a substantial number of complaints. This eventually led to a large fine at the end of 2022, announced this month, from CNIL, the French Data Protection Regulator, against Microsoft, for €60 million. This fine highlighted the fact that cookies had been on the agenda for many Data Protection Authorities and the severity of the consequences for not following GDPR requirements. The implications of this case will have a lasting effect on the relations between European Data Protection Authorities and corporations, as well as the resources necessary to stay compliant. Highlights include: ·      [00:04:16] Microsoft's Changes to Cookie Practices ·      [00:09:21] Navigating Regulatory Landscapes for Businesses ·      [00:14:21] The Importance of Data Privacy Board Oversight Resources For more information on the issues raised in this podcast, check out the Cordery Compliance, News Section.
