Not that long ago, reading [about privacy] would have been regarded as nerdy. Data privacy - or data protection, as we say in Europe - used to be seen as arcane and irrelevant to business and ordinary people. introducing yourself as a data protection lawyer or privacy professional was a recipe for embarrassment and a sure way of getting some funny looks. However, at some point, something suddenly changed. What was wacky is now cool. What seemed like an obscure legal discipline with funny jargon and odd rules has become a critical consideration for businessses and governments. More importantly, what seemed to matter to only a few is now one of the issues that will determine the immediate future of humankind.
The stakes are sky high. More than ever, policy makers, regulators and privacy professionals need to work together, accept each other’s perspectives, focus on what really matters and be equally ambitious and realistic.
This is an insert taken from Eduardo Ustaran’s The Future of Privacy. Visit the DataGuidance website for more information about the publication.
