GDR - 2020.1 Magazine
The first GDR edition of 2020 leads with an in-depth look at the controversial GDPR one-stop shop system – and a look at whether the complex mechanism could be holding back enforcement of the headline EU data protection regime.

Finally, as regulators appear to diverge on cookie regulation across the EU, experts from Covington & Burling analyse the controversy.
