The Privacy Guy – Privacy Promise 8 – Privacy by design & by default
As everyone that has read his thoughts and watched his videos knows, The Privacy Guy is one seriously cultured individual. Without culture he would be nothing. He’d be an empty shell of a man. A man in an ill fitting grey suit with a clipboard, ticking boxes and shouting, “Computer says no!”. In short, he would be an unsuccessful man.
The Privacy Guy – Privacy Promise 7 – International
The rules in relation to personal data are different from country to country. This has the potential to make the lives of some companies complicated. Which rules apply? How can we make compliance easier? How can we make sure that personal information is protected, wherever it travels? What if the way we process personal information is right in one country, but wrong in another?
The Privacy Guy – Promise 6 – Security
You’ve got to keep personal information safe they say. What does that mean? How safe do you have to keep it? And how do I check whether it is safe enough? All good questions. But, you won’t find the answers in the GDPR, or any other data protection legislation. What you need is a little help from real data protection experts like The Privacy Guy.

You’ve got to fight……… for your right………to privacy. Well, not any more. The GDPR has given individuals plenty of rights which they can exercise quickly and easily. Satisfying those rights is the tricky, time consuming part.
The Privacy Guy – Privacy Promise 4 – Safe Sharing
We all know someone who overshares, right? But, in such situations it isn’t your personal information the person is oversharing, it is theirs. In the world of privacy and data protection, it is our personal information that is being overshared. Sometimes it is sensitive personal information. And that’s far from great. In fact, it is against the law.
The Privacy Guy – Privacy Promise 3 – Transparency
This is where it starts to get uncomfortable for some organisations. ‘Transparency’ is the third of our Eight Privacy Promises. Once you have an accurate and up to date Inventory, you need to tell individuals what you do with their personal information and explain the rights those individuals have in relation to that personal information.
