The Human Price for Data and Privacy Protection


This week Rob McDonald, SVP of Platform at Virtru joins the podcast to double-click into the data and privacy protection discussion. We explore subsidizing the pain of giving personal data in exchange for ‘free’ services, informed consent, regulation alone isn’t a silver bullet, and what outcomes we could we drive when we combine user decisions with regulation.

And he shares insights on behaviors that come with innovation, data as a common denominator, regulations such as GDPR and CCPA as progress markers (and not the final destination), the criticality of the CIO/CISO as a storyteller, and recognizing our front-line defenders are people (not robots!).
