Personal data and the lack of consumer trust and control over what is held by others is becoming one of the defining issues of our times.
And our founder and chairman Julian Ranger is now firmly established as an expert in how this can all be handled so much better than at present.
He is quoted extensively in this new Entrepreneur.com article looking at 4 Ways the Fight Over Data is Getting Way More Personal, which covers the fact Facebook effectively has a global monopoly as well as how new European regulation will change the face of personal data.
It also looks at how both technological advancements and public opinion are both challenging the status quo, with a focus on digi.me and its vision to bring back control to the user, putting them at the centre of their connected world in the Internet of Me.
It’s well worth reading in full, and is summed up by this very apt statement: “It will be exciting to see how entrepreneurs step into this space. In the same way that the Internet connected us in a way that few people could have imagined, returning data to its owners could change the Internet into a vastly different place yet again.”
Hurrah to that!
