Recently, you might have heard of something called the GDPR. It has something to do with the Russians, right? Well, no. Well, not entirely, anyway. The GDPR is a massive law that protects Europeans’ data from companies that would like to peddle off the fact that you have a predeliction of ordering ice-cream at 2 AM (heh) to some company for a quick buck. And Google’s been very evil and is being fined 50 million Euros. So the Simblified trio (duo actually, Naren wasn’t there) have a look at the law and its ramifications. By the way, Simblified is not GDPR compliant so you can’t unsubscribe (ok you can, but please don’t).

Notes:

  • Simblified came good! I had stayed away from 101 explainers of GDPR all this while, and Malad West came through for me.
  • Some more discussion in depth of what a data leak is and why it can be harmful would have been nice though.
