This week at IT Expo in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, one of the hottest topics was compliance with privacy legislation, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals within the European Union (EU).
GDPR will have their first anniversary this year on May 25, and industry observers are closely watching for changes to the legislation, or more to the point – more emphasis on compliance.
“Now that GDPR has gone into effect, how have the new rules impacted businesses and customers and what should you expect to see going forward with regards to data privacy and security?” asked Akshay Sharma, industry analyst and principal at neXt Curve. “What new requirements may be coming? How many applications will regulations apply to?”
Sharma was joined by Karan Zaveri, CTO of 24/7 Software, and Ron Romanchik, Chief Revenue Officer for Call Cabinet, as they explored a number of interesting use cases where private personal information is shared.
Zaveri kicked off the discussion sharing insights about the intersection of physical security and digital data collection, citing the many ways in which consumer information is collected as part of applications in sports arenas and other public venues.Click here to read the full article: What's Next in The Increasingly Complex World of GDPR: Implications for IoT at IT Expo
