Data Privacy & Protection - Act, Don't React!

Why Should You Care About Privacy?


By 2023, 65% of the world’s population will be protected by privacy regulations. 80 countries have already implemented some form of data protection act that aims to protect citizens from having their data shared, utilised or retained against their will.





What are the Consequences?


If we examine the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the data privacy act protecting European Citizens, companies have already been fined more than €250m, excluding fines that have not been made public. The repercussions of these data laws for every organisation both big and small, are only beginning to be felt.


What Does This Mean?


First, there is a growing global consensus that customers and “users” of digital platforms should retain sovereignty over their personal information and data after they cease to utilise a particular platform.


Second, the ability to audit access and sharing of data, as well as the ability to permanently delete all traces of this data, fall squarely on the service/application provider.


The main repercussion of these data privacy laws, is that the application provider can be held financially liable for any failure to manage user data in accordance with regulations.
