So who knew it was International Data Protection Day today?  If I’m honest – I didn’t,  but is a great excuse to celebrate protecting personal data.

These extremely clever people have of interesting points to make:


Before GDPR there were no limits about what could be done with your personal data.  A survey about holidays could lead to cold calling for double glazing.  Your kid’s mobile number could end up on a database for insurance claims when they can’t drive yet.  The situation felt wrong, out of control and harmful.  Companies had huge customer databases that were large, unmanageable and out of date.  Often for products that were no longer produced for customers who no longer needed them.  That can’t be efficient and effective use of anyone’s time, money or resources.

GDPR makes a lot of sense

We should protect personal data.  The way we should limit where it goes.  How we should be in control of it’s journey. How often do you feel that you can trust a company with your personal data?  Be one of those companies that people trust.
