Who wrote that document? It's so clear that I am amazed -- did not expect that.
Also, before I read that I thought GDPR was more stupid legislation that would mostly stifle innovation.
However, that document really makes things clear that it is about stopping people from collecting data from you without your consent and making it far more clear when they do collect data from you.
Thanks for posting that. Very good.
That all sounds eminently sensible for me, and a long overdue rebalance of rights in favour of the consumer. The recent Cambridge Analytica/Facebook fiasco should be sufficient evidence of the need for this.
"If you don't fail at least 90 percent of the time, you're not aiming high enough."
It is all common sense. Except it's hard. It's like they want to make a car 100% safe and have zero fatalities, but they also want a car that people actually enjoy driving and more important, want to buy.
Take backups as an example. Backups contain Personally Identifiable Info (PII). If someone requests to be forgotten then they need to be purged everywhere. EVERYWHERE. Except who is going to go and screw around with their backups to purge data from backups? You'd want to make a backup before such a dangerous operation, right?
It's also a little vague. It talks about a Data Subject not EU citizen, and the consensus is that this means anyone in the EU. So an Australian on holidays to the EU has the rights the GDPR instills simply by being in the EU. However, how do you prove someone's actually in the EU when they make a right to be forgotten request? What if they access the internet via a VPN or Proxy that's based in the States? Essentially you have assume the GDPR applies to everyone on the planet.
Given that there are about 100 of these types of regulations around it's become the case that you have to cater to the lowest common denominater. The burden on companies who are honestly trying to do the right thing and are barely making it through their day dealing with their actual business is overwhelming. They basically live with the Sword of Damocles hanging over them.
In the community lounge, under the Non-English Language sub-section I am seeing only two Sub-topics Indian and Chinese, do other Country or Continent users see different topics than me being Indian? Why don't we have sub-topics for other Countries too? Just checking
"There is already enough hatred in the world lets spread love, compassion and affection."
A lot of dictionaries/language books are treating that as its own dialect - Indian English. That said, the Indian forum is in English, since there's no Indian regional language (including Tamil/Hindi/Punjabi) that everyone understands.
I am constantly told that I need to maintain a very active LinkedIn Profile. What are your thoughts?
'With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of control,mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country! from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?' - Jay Leno
I've got a linkedin profile, not touched it for years. Still get messages about people are looking at it, and people it suggests I should connect to.
Really can't be bothered, it's just facebook for bragging about qualifications and promotions.
(Only plus point is no pictures of your freind's-friend's-friend's new baby or what your smartphone addicted mates had for lunch.)
