GDPR and digital services
Internet Service Providers control an enormous number of clients’ data, which must be kept private and preserved. For example, websites and apps usually operate with mobile numbers and email addresses. In these situations – where the user does not provide permission for any further use of processing of the data – you need to be confident that you are not collecting these personal data in your database.
The role of GDPDR in the Digital Sector
GDPR is also encouraging investments and the development of regional cloud networks. Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is assumed to drive the data centre and the digitalization investments growth in Europe between 2021 and 2025.
The German government, for example, projected to spend around $4 billion on artificial intelligence services and products by 2025. Comparable investments will be afforded by private companies such as Digital Realty and NTT Global Data Center.
