Are we living "The Truman Show"? I had a chat with Mads Flensted Hauge, Chairman of DAMA Denmark and DPO and Data Governance Manager at a Danish health care provider.
We looked at Data Privacy from four different perspectives:
The society perspective
What is data privacy and why is it important? How transparent are we as citizens?What considerations need to take place when we talk about data sharing across public agencies? The company perspective
Why should we care about privacy in our company? Are we just talking about compliance? Where should the DPO role be places in a company?Does your HR system need a feature to show your employees home on google maps?The data worker perspective
What does this mean for us data workers in how we treat data? What does privacy by design mean?What is the impact of AI, ML,… on privacy?The personal perspective
What can I do to keep my personal data save? How many smart devices do I need in my home? Can I live without a washing machine with Wi-Fi connection?Has the corona pandemic made it even more ok to share private heath data?Here are my key takeaways:
Convenience drives change and digitalization in public sector - and sometimes privacy becomes the victim for efficiency.To apply GDPR you need to apply different knowledge areas of Data Management. That is why these two are closely combined.It has always been hard to show the value of a data management journey from the start, but with GDPR and the ominous notion of fines, data management got the ear of the C-level.Since GDPR is framed as compliance, it leads companies to do just the bare minimum to be compliant.GDPR forces you to get a deeper knowledge about your business.There is an ethics dimension to data privacy, and DPOs are on the forefront to instigate this ethics site.A DPO does not just write policies and procedures but must navigate company culture to promote ethics and privacy actively.
