Rebecca Rakoski Periodical on Privacy in 2018 for Policy & Medicine’s Compliance Update

Rebecca L. Rakoski, Esq.’s periodical, ‘A Modern Renaissance Privacy in 2018 and Its Continuing Domestic Evolution,’ has been published in Policy & Medicine‘s Compliance Update.  Below is an excerpt from the article…

The EU formalized and enhanced that fundamental right of all citizens with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), a sweeping and all-encompassing privacy regulation that shined a spotlight on the need for individuals to be aware of how companies are collecting and using personal data.
