No, but I am expecting them Sep 27

I haven't noticed any recent changes, but with Brexit looming I am expecting some enhancements as the UK's status in relation to cross-border transfers of data changes as it becomes a third country for the GDPR purposes. I expect that my European clients will require me to sign new data protection agreements to reflect the changes.

And my clients' data and security practices are not something I'm usually concerned with.

If they made changes, I’m not aware of them…

I have translated several new terms and privacy policies of several companies adapting to the new European rules, but none from clients so far.
In addition, the growing use of online platforms and clouds by agencies likely represents less secure practices, not the other way around.

I don't have reason to know the internal practices of my clients unless they tell me.
