The launch of the Data Privacy Periodic Table earlier this month was a roaring success. We’ve received some excellent feedback, and some people are even printing it off for their office walls!
Some of the comments we’ve received:
“Not seen anything like this before.”
“Very useful for the project I am working on right now.”
“Great initiative and a very innovative way of displaying what is a lot of information.”
But more importantly, we have also had some really constructive feedback and fascinating conversations on new “elements” to include, some to move and even debates on the worthiness of some elements’ inclusion.
All in all, it’s been a really exciting launch. We have now completed some updates to the Table and a new version is now available below. As always, some notes on what we have done are underneath, along with reasoning behind why some input has not been pursued.
This is however by no means a finished project. We still want your feedback as the data privacy world changes under our feet. Case law might mean that new central components of privacy may be demanded, or new independent bodies may be formed. And of course, new core legislation will always be likely. So submit comments below, or contact me directly.
Data Protection Authorities
We were asked by a number of readers to add DPAs to the Independent Bodies section on the far right hand side, but we have decided against it. Such terminology was deemed too GDPR-focused, which we are trying hard to avoid with this project.
Although, we have taken on board the sentiment of the comment and recognized we needed to add enforcement bodies alongside the Local Legislators that were already included. We have therefore added in Local Regulators, in place of the EU, on the basis that we needed to make room somehow; didn’t need two European organizations; and were wiser to include the European Data Protection Board instead.
