Navigating the world of privacy and compliance is no trivial task. On one side, we see a world that is becoming more and more privacy-conscious. On the other side, we see a proliferation of applications that compromise user privacy. In this tug-of-war, the landscape of what you can do with people’s sensitive personal data is continually changing.
And just like a tug of war, lines are continually being drawn. For example, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to a major region of Europe consisting of multiple countries (the EU), each with its own set of data privacy laws. In the United States, individual states like California have been enacting legislation like the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which directly affects data privacy and compliance requirements in those states.
