Xavier Alabart, Privacy Aces, says the trend toward viewing personal data as belonging to its subjects will only continue, and companies would do well to adopt that underlying principle because many regulatory requirements flow logically from it, including the right to access data and the right to request deletion. Other participants noted that the assumption that data must be exfiltrated to be compromised has proven wrong, and hackers are adept at identifying new ways to exploit technology for profit.
