Cyber Security Legal Expert and CNN Commentator Dr. Adriana Sanford joins Episode #70 of Task Force 7 Radio to discuss how EU countries are passing and aggressively enforcing regulatory laws that are affecting the way U.S. Big Tech companies are doing business there. Dr. Sanford and Host George Rettas also discuss the legality of simply posting a photo of your children on social media in some European countries, they compare EU laws to the privacy laws in the United States, they discuss France's tough approach to U.S. Tech companies doing business in their country, and they talk about what type of exposure U.S. companies have for non-compliance. Dr. Sanford also discusses how privacy professionals should prioritize their efforts to compliance, what the effort to establish some regulatory uniformity and harmony looks like, what countries are seeing the highest rate of enforcement actions, and what companies in the U.S. need to be aware of moving into 2019.
