The GDPR is Coming to the US

  • Thankfully California was so much smarter with their qualifications than the EU was - it only affects companies with (a) annual gross revenues of $25 million; (b) obtains personal information of 50,000 or more California residents, households or devices annually; or (c) 50 percent or more annual revenue from selling California residents’ personal information. Way easier for small companies like us to deal with.

    There should be an added caveat... if you post your junk on Facebook or Twiiter, we get to sell your junk. πŸ˜‰

    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
    First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a ROW... think, instead, of what you want to do to a COLUMN.

  • I think the CA does have some better limits. We'll see how it goes.

    How about, "Nothing is free. If you aren't paying for it, you're not the customer... You're the product being sold"?

  • Hopefully the US does not follow Europe's overreaching business-crunching GDPR edict. There's already enough government regulation on US companies.
    I know, I know, an unpopular vote here probably. If a company doesn't have its act together, it can already be sued. HIPPA is another example of gross over-bearing government excess.

  • Excited to see where this goes - both California's law and Europe's GDPR. In the US what I've seen in my studies are attempts to enact soft standards (ex. FIPS) with no enforcement. GDPR changes that. Should be a very interesting next few years to see how all this plays out.

  • This will impact the advertising and even the BI sector a bit. Getting down to the user is pretty insightful.

  • Anything that emanates fro the EU should be avoided like the plague. It is a corrupt controlling organisation that would have us subjected to the undemocratic control of a few unelected bureaucrats only interested in their own evil ends.

    In the US, even companies that do have their act together get sued.  Remember... once someone sues you, you're guilty until proven innocent and no matter what happens, it's going to take time and money to prove it.

    As opposed to the US Congress?
    The EU is all those things - which is why I voted to leave it (are you listening Prime Minister?)  but to paint it as the only demon in the room is patently wrong.
    As to "undemocratic control of a few unelected bureaucrats" (agreed!) how  about the democratic control of some paid-for senators and congressmen - which gets me back to the subject of certain (hyper-rich) US companies... πŸ™‚

    The EU is the hotel California... "you can check out any time you like but you can never leave".
    GDPR is an extension of EU legislation across the world... It's legislative colonisation.... Enjoy.

    I don't think that is really the case. It is an elected body with appointed commissions, like any governmental organisation, as you cannot elect everyone and you need to keep continuity in some areas. There are some bad apples out to get what they can for no work, for example Nigel Farrage and other UKIP MEPs known to avoid any actual work, however there are many that do attempt to represent their constituencies. Julia Reda on copyright reform for instance who I may not totally agree with but has certainly shaken things up. To dismiss the EU on the basis of knowledge of US politicians demonstrates lack of knowledge of the subject area.

    Apologies for my being miss-informed and lacking in knowledge of the subject area - it was probably that same ignorance that caused me to vote 'Leave'.
    Now, careful you don't hurt yourself when you (eventually) climb down from that high-chair...

    You say that like it's a bad thing... The very best thing any politician can do is avoid doing any actual work. 
    Besides, UKIP just picked up Sargon & Dankula... If nothing else, I expect that their memes will improve. πŸ™‚
