Adoption of Gdpr – In The Intermunicipal Community of Terras de Trás-Os-Montes, Portugal
In the face of rapid globalization and rapid technological evolution, new challeng-es have emerged in terms of personal data protection, demanding a solid and more coherent protection framework in the European Union (EU). Thus, the Eu-ropean Union created a Regulation, in 2016, with the aim of protecting the priva-cy of personal data of citizens of the European Union. Thus, in May 2018, Regu-lation (EU) 2016/679 - General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force. Thus, after 6 years since its creation and four since its entry into force, with this research work, we intend, through a survey, to assess the state of implemen-tation and adoption of the GDPR in Local Public Administration in Portugal, fo-cusing on Municipalities inserted in the Intermunicipal Community of Lands of Trás-os-Montes (CIM-TTM). The results are discussed in the light of the litera-ture and future work is identified with the aim of evaluating the implementation of such an important regulation with regard to secrecy, privacy and preservation of personal data.
