With recent hacking scandals, Google CEO Sundar Pichai has stated that the time had come to create a global law on cybersecurity. He said that the world would be a more connected place if we had an international convention on technology that would outline international standards. For example, this would require two-factor authentication for personal data. But is such a law really needed? Let’s discuss.
Currently, GDPR requires companies to take appropriate steps to protect the personal data of their customers. Google uses state-of-the-art encryption and cryptography in its global infrastructure to ensure the privacy of its customers. The measures it takes ensure that data is safe while traveling and that administrators can operate it without compromising the security of the systems. This means that GDPR is necessary for Google to protect its users’ data.
