In this episode of Everything Compliance Jonathan Armstrong talks about developments in competition/anti-trust law and GDPR. A recent opinion by an Attorney-General at the ECJ involving Facebook suggests that competition law regulators can take GDPR into account when looking at enforcement? What will this mean for big tech and for other companies? Jonathan also looks at some of the drivers behind this including the perceived lack of activity by data protection regulators in Ireland. He recalls an earlier conversation with Max Schrems on these topics. You can find out more about that conversation here https://www.corderycompliance.com/interview-with-max-schrems/.
