Last year the internet saw the largest regulatory change since the invention. The European Union launched its privacy regulation: GDRP.
Companies now need to be more transparent about the data they collect and allow everyone the opportunity to be forgotten.
I’m very skeptical about this law. The reason is easy. I highly doubt the European Union takes privacy into any consideration. Since when are they interested in this? If they are really interested in this than they should stop collecting all the data themselves.
We see now, slowly on, the first changes on government sides. It is a shame that the government organizations are failing to implement it themselves on such quick notice. Take the city of Eindhoven. They are reserving money to be compliant. Somewhere this year. While private firms are already compliant. The Dutch tax agency needs over 12 months to get compliant. They think. At the tax, agency ICT is a mess. So let’s see if they can do it in a decade.
If you like to avoid the high fines, up to 20 million Euro, there is a government-backed GDRP course available. So take your chance now and avoid this massive fine.
