We held an Information Privacy, Security and Governance webinar titled “GDPR Update: CNIL Google Decision.” Jeremiah Posedel discussed the French Data Protection Authority’s (CNIL) recent €50 million fine against Google under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the highest fine imposed by an EU supervisory authority under the GDPR to date.

The webinar covered:

  • Background information on the GDPR
  • The GDPR’s transparency and notice requirements
  • The GDPR’s affirmative consent requirement
  • Details of the complaint against Google
  • CNIL’s findings
  • CNIL’s jurisdiction over Google
  • Factors influencing the sanctions imposed against Google
