PORTLAND, Ore. – Facebook is promising to give you more control over your digital identity after news surfaced that a data-mining firm allegedly misused people’s information, but will that be enough to protect your personal information?
Starting May 25, the European Union is implementing new regulations to protect consumers.
Jim Kascade, CEO of a local identity security company Janrain, says the EU regulations will benefit consumers.
“It’s giving the consumers an amazing amount of power to control their privacy – so the right to understand what information is being collected, the right to be forgotten and the right to be deleted,” he said.
In Sunday’s edition of Your Voice, Your Vote, he shares what kind of impact he feels the EU regulations will have on the United States, and offers suggestions on how you can take to protect your digital data.
