GDPR has re-kindled a debate. Internationally it has sparkled a series of similar frameworks. MEF members are engaging with the regulation and expanding on its interpretation. The post-GDPR period is proving to be an opportunity for some companies to build a competitive advantage.
At MEF the discussions has never been more lively than in the last few months – this moment is the opportunity to shape the future, to influence large players and regulators, to collectively re-design the framework of Trust, Data and Personalisation. Come and join the debate.Dario BettiCEO, MEF
Organizations big and small should not be resigned to simply comply with the rules laid down by the GDPR and similar legislation. They should not be afraid to empower individuals and to give them control of their data. Rather, to thrive in the wake of GDPR companies should embrace change, adopt new systems, and overcome their challenges, and use this opportunity to re-configure their value chains, organizational systems, and business models, to innovate, and most importantly to refresh and forge new bonds with the people they serve.Michael BeckerManaging Partner, Identity Praxis
GDPR is also becoming a gold standard worldwide. Many customers outside Europe are happy to know their data processed in Europe is protected by the provisions of GDPR. Other countries, such as India and Australia, are looking at GDPR as a model for their own future regulations.Andrew BudCEO & Founder, iProov
Regulated businesses are more inclined to find and implement robust solutions to GDPR that will both stand the test of time and deliver upon the principles codified by the regulation. Yet one year on, silence rings out, action remains to be taken, and a lack of initiative means companies have failed, or at the very least are yet to adopt fulsome solutions to the GDPR.Shawn BrownCEO, Trunomi
