There’s no hiding it any longer. The most infamous online privacy hack, Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica scandal, opened the world’s eyes to how vulnerable everyone is online.
During that same year, the European Union’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) enactment shook Big Tech to it’s data-mining bones. Some companies adapted. Other sites couldn’t handle the heat and shut down their website entirely.
Everyone began to see just how serious data is.
“If these large companies are fighting for it, and the entire European Union is battling to protect it… my data must have intense value,” thought the everyday online user.
That’s completely right Mr. Everyday-Online-User. Online privacy becomes more important by the day.
