Webb McArthur volunteers on NAPBS task force

On January 17, the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) sent a letter to the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) with comments regarding the current EDPB Guidelines 3/2018 on the territorial scope of the GDPR (Article 3). Hudson Cook attorney Webb McArthur volunteered on the NAPBS task force to compose the letter on behalf of the NAPBS membership, consisting of over 900 small and large background companies engaged in the background screening profession.

In the comments, NAPBS asked for clarification for concerns that affect the NAPBS membership including obligations when Controller or Processor has no establishment in the EU, monitoring, "large-scale" processing, and more.

Webb is an associate in the firm's Washington, DC office. He advises federal and state chartered depository institutions, mortgage bankers, finance companies and licensed lenders in the development and maintenance of consumer mortgage, automobile finance and other credit programs. He also advises consumer reporting agencies, background screeners, furnishers, service providers, and others on compliance with the GDPR, the Fair Credit Reporting Act and other data security and privacy laws.
