Technology moves fast, but is privacy legislation up to speed?

Since the enactment of GDPR, many companies have adopted a reactive mode, and responded to the pressure of regulations based on the fear of fines rather than embracing the change. Due to the relatively slow intervention of regulators, and the increasing complexity of technologies, there are large portions of the tech industry which are still lagging behind. This includes the Mobile applications and gaming industry which is the largest industry by advertising spent: yet still not receptive to change. 

What steps can and should be taken to make sure that privacy professionals can follow the rapid evolution of technologies (mobile, blockchain, IoT), and enable companies to embrace the regulatory framework more proactively and in an anticipatory manner? 

A conversation between Valerio Sudrio, Global Director Apps Solutions at Usercentrics, and Stefano Leucci from the European Data Protection Supervisor who researches the intersection of Technology and Privacy to present a multistakeholder, purpose-driven approach to data management explaining how institutions keep pace with an ever-evolving data ecosystem and enhance their legitimacy, transparency, and accountability.
