Users Will Struggle With Getting Firms In Highly-Regulated Areas To Delete Their Data

An interplay exists between GDPR and other existing regulations that require the retention of records, according to Greg Wolfond, founder and CEO of Toronto-based SecureKey Technologies. Specifically, Wolfond said that GDPR isn't intended to tell banks or telecom companies to get rid of user data since they're already under regulation as to what they can and cannot do with data.

GDPR is much more focused on how organization use and share customer data and what they're allowed to share with or without a user's consent.
