With the current scandals of Facebook and Cambridge Analytica coming to light. Is it the perfect timing for the introduction of the GDPR legislation or is it too late? How many other companies, institutions or elections benefited from taking data in an unethical way?
With large companies such as Disney, Bose, and Google all breaking regulations, for their personal data collection methods. All spanning over the past five years. It seems that the illegal collection of personal data has been ongoing and the introduction of this legislation seems to be far past its due date. Will we see a dynamic change of companies data collection in the EU when the GDPR fully introduces this legislation most likely not, as no news has broken out of large companies to make this dynamic shift to become GDPR compliant. It is more likely users will continue to be forgotten and be misinformed on the on-goings of their personal data.
