Here are some more misconceptions about GDPR
April 16, 2018 / Barry Levine
There is one thing we know for certain that the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is creating: misconceptions. It’s hard to keep up with them. But, after noting nine common GDPR misconceptions a few weeks ago, we now offer a new batch gleaned from a chat with Clive Boonzaaier, director of governance, risk and compliance at security firm Cipher UK. Contrary to the inclusion of the word “compliance” in his title, and the widespread use of that term to describe companies that are abiding by GDPR’s requirements, Boonzaaier says too much emphasis on that term misses the appropriate way to view the new regulations. In his view, “compliance” is most properly used to describe obeying a clearly defined legal regulation, like a speed limit.
