“Yesterday, in Brussels, the European Parliament and the Council finally reached an agreement with the European Commission to implement new rules. They include the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation and changes to the Data Protection Directive.
The verdict was that 90% of Europeans want the same data protection rights across the board, regardless of where their data is processed, which will result in an end to the existing patchwork of data protection laws.” – Skip Fidura, Dotmailer, December 16th 2015
Whilst most content now available on GDPR focuses on its implications, this article from Skip Fidura explores GDPR from its infancy, looking into how the initiative has evolved to the fully fledged legislation we see today.

Skip’s article looks into the details from a point in time where the law was just being approved but still offers highly relevant insight.
