Ethical and legal issues are getting more and more comprehensive and wide spread in all companies regardless of size and stature. This is also because of different regulatory boards that exists across the globe, and it is important to be aware of them.

This has widespread implications in terms of:

  • Technical implementations
    • How we collect the data
    • How we process the data to protect privacy rights and protect the company’s interests
    • How we store the data
  • Business strategies
    • To adhere to regulations, significant resources and time are needed. Thus, how businesses invest in data governance is key, and how you may take part of it.

Data Regulation

We don’t have to know every regulation under the sun to be effective. Typically, we focus on the regulations that affect our industry where we are working in.

I’m familiar with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), but not the rest since I don’t work much in the other sectors.
