CEO of Apple Tim Cook, has declared security laws on Wednesday that offers digital privacy for two humongous regions i.e., Europe and the U.S.A. Cook stated that during the international conference on data security held at Brussels, it focused on major points like Apple’s commitment towards privacy and assured to support the US federal security laws.
Worldwide digital security has become a major issue wherein, European regulators take charge to establish the strict rules for the internet industries. This law has been initiated to ensure and preserve the data of the users. Security of these high-tech users is in major priority. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provides digital security to promote the privacy to all individuals in the European Union. GDPR’s main objective is to give control for all individuals to protect their personal information.
See what Cook has to say:
“Technological advancements not only promises to improve our standards of live but also resolves the negative tendencies of human beings to perpetuate the essential privileges. We can use various ways to assure the security by using some significant standards, but mainly focusing on the federal regulations. New GDPR concentrates more on collecting the user’s information from numerous industries to provide the highest security.”
Zuckerberg and Pichai around the same page:
“Facebook takes the responsibility of security to protect personal information of millions of people on social media. We are working more to build some tools, which would help to diminish the browsing history for the social media sapiens and all the fake accounts will be detected through Artificial Intelligence (AI)”
-Mark Zuckerberg (CEO of Facebook)
“We have decided to be a part of Cook’s initiative. Across the globe Google has proposed a framework to extend various principles of GDPR”
–Mr. Pichai (Head of Google)
It is time to follow the footsteps of Mr. Cook and support the comprehensive federal privacy law. The four significant key rights that should be cherished are: the right to have personal data minimized; the right for users to know what data is collected on them; the right to access that data; and the right for that data to be kept securely.
“The right to personal privacy is precious. Without it, we are all potential victims for a prying secret police”
-Lewis B Smedes
