Brandon N. Robinson Shared GDPR Compliance Blind Spots with Business Alabama

Brandon N. Robinson, partner in the firm’s Birmingham office and member of the Data Privacy & Security Practice, recently discussed the impact of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on United States-based companies in an article for Business Alabama on July 12, 2018.

Drawing from his deep experience in data privacy and security law, Brandon’s piece highlights three common misconceptions of GDPR compliance – its applicability to U.S. companies, its definition of data controllers and processors, and its scope of impact.  Brandon has counseled companies across numerous industries to evaluate data-collection methodology and ensure compliance under the new standard.

Brandon counsels public utilities and energy companies, as well as clients in a wide variety of industries on cybersecurity and data privacy issues. One of the first Alabama attorneys to obtain the IAPP’s CIPP/US certification, Brandon is respected for his knowledge in data privacy and security compliance laws, working with a number of agencies to develop industry-wide standards and best practices. Brandon is the editor of the firm’s Data Privacy & Security Observer blog, which covers legal developments in data privacy and cybersecurity.
