On February 21, 2017, Sweet & Maxwell published a Guide to the General Data Protection Regulation, written by Hunton & Williams senior consultant attorney Rosemary Jay. The book was released as a companion to Data Protection Law and Practice.

In the book, Rosemary provides a detailed and “stand-alone” account of the EU General Data Protection Regulation’s (“GDPR’s”) impact on EU data protection law. The book features an analysis of the structure and scope of the GDPR and the new obligations imposed on data processors and controllers, including breach notification requirements. In addition, Rosemary provides summaries on the broader definitions of personal data, profiling, pseudonymization and consent, and describes regulators’ increased power under the GDPR. She also analyzes the interplay between the GDPR and the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield framework.
