I surely can’t be the only one thinking - “If one more GDPR related email enters my inbox I may just have to smash my laptop into a million pieces”? But even worse, I’m now sat reading an article that claims no one is even ready for the regulatory changes tomorrow - even the regulators. Reassuring eh?
I mean it’s a little bit disturbing to hear companies admit to things like these - ‘Are you kidding? If we told them how we were using their data, they’d never give it to us in the first place,’ but then again I swing on the side of the fence that at the end of the day, we spend 90% of our lives online handing over our emails, phone numbers - you name it, we’ll give it - to goodness knows who, from goodness knows where, so we’ve maybe just got ourselves to blame.
Question I’ve got - Is GDPR really necessary, or are we just piling regulation on top of regulation with little impact?
