Securing personal data

How we need to change our mindset, and even consider education so people start recognising their personal data has value and should be managed in the same way our finances are. We know where our money is, but do we really know who has our personal data and how it’s used?” Udo Scalla said.

Adam Brown stated, “AI uses video meta-data, which can be personal data, so covered by GDPR. This means AI and GDPR are inextricably linked and GDPR should be considered in companies use of AI technology.
