The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applied since May 2018, was a policy response to widely felt skepticism and fears in the European population around privacy protection in technology. Policy-makers in EU member states and institutions intended to strike a better balance between promoting innovation and protecting the European citizens’ individual autonomy.
In this episode, we get to grips with the origins of GDPR (e.g. where did it come from and why), what impact - good and bad - it will have on the global economy, how companies can better build trust with consumers in this digital-first world and what is next for the world of privacy regulation in both the USA and Europe. You won’t want to miss this oustanding discussion. Enjoy!
