The Anti-Corruption Report

May 2018

Alja Poler De Zwart explains how companies can approach Article 10 of the GDPR, which affects how they can process personal data relating to criminal activity, in The Anti-Corruption Report article, “How Will the GDPR Affect Due Diligence?” (subscription required).

“The situation will basically put companies subject to both the GDPR and non-E.U. laws between a rock and a hard place,” she said. “Do you continue to comply with the FCPA and risk violating the GDPR, or do you scale your FCPA vetting back in fear of the GDPR fines and instead risk the wrath of the U.S. Department of Justice?”
