As we look ahead to the new year, it is clear that data protection will continue to be a top priority for individuals, businesses, and governments around the world. In this article, we will outline some of our predictions for data protection in the year ahead.
One trend that is likely to continue in the year ahead is the increasing focus on privacy and data protection in the context of emerging technologies. Artificial intelligence, the internet of things, and biometric data are just a few examples of technologies that are raising new concerns about the collection and use of personal data. We expect to see ongoing efforts to address these concerns and ensure that individuals’ privacy rights are respected as these technologies become more prevalent.
Another trend we expect to see is the continued harmonization of data protection laws and regulations across different countries and regions. This is important in order to facilitate cross-border data flows and reduce compliance burdens for businesses operating in multiple jurisdictions.
We also anticipate that there will be new data protection regulations or updates to existing regulations in order to address specific issues or sectors, such as healthcare or financial services. In particular, we expect to see increased attention on protecting sensitive personal data in these sectors.
Overall, it is clear that data protection will continue to be a major concern in the year ahead. It will be important for individuals and organizations to stay informed about the latest developments and best practices in order to protect personal and sensitive data.
On the 13th of January, we will be hosting an episode of our podcast where we look forward to the year ahead in the world of Data Protection and our top experts David Holmes and Philip Brining will share predictions on what lies ahead.
