Data protection regulations are ambiguous! They open for more than one interpretation. Not surprisingly googling "GDPR" will race all time high on the thermometer scale. In fact, you can spend the next 20 years reading through 5,7 million interpretations. And we have seven months to go before the new EU regulative becomes fully enforceable.
The information is hitting us like a hurricane. The rain keeps pouring down. It won’t stop. If you search “eu general data protection regulation” you get 16,6 million hits, and if that is not enough “data protection regulation” will give you 50 million. With my latest contribution, I suggest that you start by reading number 50.000.0001.
With the data privacy? Start running? Pray that it will all go over. Cross the fingers that a four-year-debate in the EU Parliament cannot be that bad. A data regulation billed as the “most important change” in 20 years!A regulation that will protect you and your family, friends, colleagues and everyone else in the world! Should we treat it as a gift? Something wonderful? Something that will rock the world?
Let’s look at what the fuss is all about. From an IT perspective, of course. CONTROL! CONTROL! CONTROL! You must understand your data. Privacy relevant data. Getting shape of things. Getting things in shape! Processes and data. You should constantly review processes and technology-best-practices for privacy protection.
There is a lot of mismanaged privacy data out there. GDPR will rock the world! Also beyond EU. As an organization, it is important that you 1) understand your data, 2) get your processes in shape, and 3) identify technology gaps for new investments needed.
