Do you view the new GDPR rules as a positive for cities?

Jamie Cudden, Smart City Program Manager, Dublin City Council

Yes, overall GDPR rules are a positive development for cities and citizens. They provide much-needed clarity around the purpose of personal data collection, how the data is used and how long the data will be retained for. It gives citizens more control over their personal data and the ability to opt out at any time. These rules will put in place much better safeguards and rights for citizens.

From a city perspective, being GDPR compliant builds consumer confidence in the organisation. Similarly engaging with companies that are GDPR compliant provides trust that their organisation is a good data custodian. Having a GDPR compliant framework lays the groundwork for improving data security throughout the organisation.
