Look at GDPR differently
GDPR has now been live for 18 months – but is it well-understood?
When it arrived, it was intended to codify and protect data subjects’ rights in a way that no legislation had ever achieved before.
But did it succeed? In practice, does GDPR protect the principles of data privacy? Or did it drift into becoming simply another set of legal requirements?
The distinction is important. If businesses underappreciate the principles embedded within GDPR, their adherence efforts will miss the point. Alternatively, if GDPR is too principled, the legislation is not for purpose. Dozens of countries are basing their own data privacy legislation on GDPR, so if GDPR has failed in either way, we need to identify that danger now.
