The court’s decision allows for “a force multiplier” of other EU authorities enforcing the regulation, said Aaron Cooper, vice president of global policy at software industry group BSA. Letting other authorities bring privacy enforcement actions in local court could help alleviate concerns that some European regulators don’t have the resources to investigate and follow through on privacy complaints, Cooper said.
Privacy watchdogs across Europe should be consistent in how they interpret and apply the GDPR and how they coordinate with one another, he added.
