Maria Raphael, partner in Privacy Minders and member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), has been chosen to contribute the Cyprus Chapter to the new tool by IAPP called "EU Member State GDPR Derogation Implementation Tracker" available specifically to its members.
The tool looks at specific provisions in the EU General Data Protection Regulation whereby member states are required to, or may, create rules specific to that country — commonly referred to as derogations — and offers information on how each member state has addressed them in national law. The idea behind it is to offer IAPP members the ability to compare the rules for each EU member state, derogation by derogation.
At this point, most EU member states have passed laws implementing the GDPR, though not all, and thus have determined how they will implement the derogations.
Here’s the link to the tracker: https://iapp.org/resources/tools/eu-member-state-gdpr-derogation-implementation/
