Data Protection in a Hyperconnected World

Living in a hyperconnected world means that it becomes harder and harder to realize the core principles of data protection law. Constantly being surrounded by devices that monitor our behaviour for reasons ranging from providing personalized services to security brings us significantly closer to an Orwellian surveillance state. Preventing inappropriate use of data and limiting collection becomes more important than ever. This is further punctuated by the increasing ability and desire to predict a person’s state of mind as well as future actions.
