CBA National, "Scoping Europe's long reach on data protection"
David Krebs comments on the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Misconceptions remain about the GDPR, how it applies and what it means for a business. “It’s a pretty complicated legal framework,” says David Krebs of Miller Thomson LLP in Saskatoon, whose business law practice focuses on compliance, privacy and cybersecurity. A company, he says, can be subject to the GDPR without having a physical office in Europe.
