    It’s a rainy Thursday morning and I’ve just got into my driverless cab. I’d usually miss it, but because the cab now knows the average time I take to get ready, there is no actual way I could miss one. It knows where I need to go, what time I need to be there and also the preferred route I want, all through a 0.2 second scan of my thumb’s fingerprint. During my ride, I listen to the playlist made for me specially for this Thursday. It was made instantly as I typed in the first two words that came to my mind this morning. It can be any literally any word, isn’t that fun? It knows what music I want to listen to, the length of the songs I like, the mix of genres I prefer, and it also predicts the exact moments I would get bored of the song and automatically removes it from the playlist - only to replace it with an absolute banger of a song I was thinking about giving a listen to.

    The age old question we ask ourselves on what we receive, is to what we have to give up in order to have it. Will data become the new aspect we give up in order for tech in the health field progress? With new ways to help improve the lives of millions of people who potentially can be at their most vulnerable, personal data continues to be of major importance in health progression.

    Jul 9, 2018 10:00:00 AM / by Laurens Mommers | COO | PrivacyPerfect posted in GDPR Compliance, Data Breach, Data Security, Data Transfer, Personal Data

    Previously, I wrote a blog post (see here) on data breaches and where to report them, focusing on the notion of ‘lead supervisory authority’. In this blog post, I focus on the contents of data breach notifications in relation to the GDPR. It is important to notice that notifications might be to either of two stakeholders: the supervisory authority and/or the data subjects concerned (the ‘victims’ of the data breach).
