GDPR - are you ready for the challenge?

The recent Facebook-Cambridge Analytica scandal has stirred heated discussions on privacy around the globe. An estimated 87 million people are affected by the data breach. Although the majority of the affected users are in the United States, Facebook published that personal data of over 1 million users in the Philippines, United Kingdom, and Indonesia are also compromised.

For the people who ratified the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the answer is a resounding NO.

As Reinis Papulis of KRONBERGS ČUKSTE DERLING points out, “today’s level of technological development and role of personal data in the provision of various services has made it impossible to ensure the protection of personal data (privacy of individuals) at an adequate level with a legal act that was adopted in the second half of the 90's.”

This has prompted the EU to overhaul its defences against data breaches. Technology changes fast and data collection is at its peak today. Out of the necessity to protect consumers and uphold data privacy, the General Data Protection Regulation is set to be in full effect beginning May 25, 2018.

The battle for data privacy is not lost. And the enforcement of GDPR shows that we can still put up a good fight against companies that treat our personal data as commodities. However, there’s still a long way ahead of us.
