Europrivacy.info has fulfilled the task of preparing Italian companies for the impact of the GDPR. We started to publish our interpretations of the law well before the final text was approved (in 2015) and we organized dozens of public conferences and debates even with the Data Protection Authority. We consider this task concluded with 316 posts.
We have therefore decided to close the blog at 12/31/2018 thanking the authors and our readers for their support and sympathy.
