Evolving perception of personal data in 2019

The value of data has never been more apparent. Since the last Data Protection Day in January 2018, there has been a significant shift in how data is regarded, utilised and protected.

Facebook is also facing potential billion-pound fines from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
