GDPR is not data privacy by choice, follow the Privacy data!
The excessive hype around GDPR and the enormous effort and expense to comply, signals that the so-called right to privacy is a fundamental right. Not true.
The main concerns of GDPR are based on fallacies.
The first delusion is that data protection law can give individuals control over their data. No it does not.
The basic principle underlying GDPR is that it considers personal data as the property of an individual,
not data controllers or processors. This applies to all EU citizens, wherever they are and regardless of the location of the organization.
The lingering uncertainty around the GDPR is one of the biggest impediments to compliance, with parts of it deliberately left vague.
