The 25th of May 2018 will be a day that is forever etched into our memories. It is a day we had been working towards for well over seven years by the time it arrived. For those of you who don’t remember – it is the day the GDPR entered into application. What other topic could we possibly discuss in today’s Serious Privacy episode other than the first GDPR review? The serious question is – is it time to celebrate?
Let’s look at lessons we learned over the past two years and review activities by consumers, businesses, and regulators. You will get both the U.S. and the European perspective, and we have a special guest for this episode – TrustArc’s own CEO, Chris Babel. Chris brings with him decades of experience in both security and privacy and has a front row seat in most privacy initiatives. Being in security when it first ramped up in compliance requirements provided Chris with a solid understanding of how compliance initiatives grow, including funding challenges. We discuss the good, the bad, the ugly – and the promise of GDPR. Listen to this week’s episode on our website or stream the episode below.
