Wash away the bad press with a bit of soap.

Well it is almost Emmerdale and those searching for it will probably see emerdata pop up in the google predictions.

Re: Cambridge Analytica

Have you noticed how many are now contacting us to say they are updating and/or reviewing their privacy policies?

Strange eh, or not.

Re: Cambridge Analytica

Not really.  Most organisations will need to update their privacy policies for GDPR which comes in to force later this month, so they would need to do that regardless of the Cambridge Analytica debacle or not.

Re: Cambridge Analytica

I had also put it down to the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), which come into force in a week or so. Those pesky Europeans, coming over here and telling businesses to look after our personal data - just another example of EU red tape, which I suspect will be cut in a year or two (maybe three - four at the outside ...)
