Italian Data Protection Authority Issues First Guidelines On GDPR-Readiness

The Italian Data Protection Authority (Garante) has released its first set of guidelines on the General Data Protection Regulation.

Specifically, the Garante believes that written consent still represents a safer and more secure option for obtaining legal certainty of data processing.

In addition, the Garante issued specific recommendations (separate from GDPR guidelines) regarding rights of data subjects, balancing interests between data subjects' rights and the rights of third parties, how companies should appoint one data controller (versus several), and more.
