Introduction ou extrait du livre blanc

Extrait du livre blanc : "As technology evolves, data becomes an abundant and tradable resource leading to a revival of Big Brother's myth.

To the public’s eyes, it exists today not only in government programs but also in internet companies, telecom operators and many more.

We continuously generate data in our every-day use of Internet or mobile phones and implicitly consent to unread terms in order to benefit from services, often free, that get enriched every day.

Data privacy has always been a key issue in many regions. Snowden-Gate brought it however, to a new level of exposure. Worldwide, regulation bodies have therefore accelerated their initiatives to address data privacy issues on a regional level. For telecom operators, the implication of this new concern is therefore tied to the local regulation context and culture.

For instance, the European Union is at the forefront of the current debate and enacted the General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) that aims to define a stricter privacy framework to protect EU residents."
