3 What would Apple do?

The post What would Apple do? appeared first on The Spindle.

Every other month, innovation facilitators from 14 NGOs in the Netherlands, gather to share best practices and dive into a challenging case of one of their organisations. Is the word ‘innovation’ on your business card or in your professional genes, do you work for a Dutch NGO and do you feel the need to exchange best practices? The case always revolves around the question: How to facilitate the pursuit of innovation in our own organisations? The sector knows many forms of complex structures between organisations: partnerships, multi-organisational alliances or other forms of cooperation.

7 GDPR is an Important Advance in Privacy. Here’s What Must Come Next.

The United States continues to argue that its “sectoral approach” to data privacy protects the most sensitive types of data and focuses enforcement where the biggest privacy harms may arise. Now is the time to move beyond these disputes to create a global framework on privacy that provides transparency, control, and autonomy to individuals online. In the United States, comprehensive privacy legislation is needed and should be consistent with emerging global privacy standards across all sectors. But with the GDPR, Europe has become the de facto leader in addressing personal privacy. Individual agency will only come when people have the ability to challenge the digital decisions that are made about them.
