While the European data management community is fully occupied with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) the United States president realDonaldTrump and his family is preparing something bigger being the Great Data Protection Wall (GDPW).
An upcoming executive order will enforce a tall and beautiful wall around each data centre. It’s true.
Hereafter, the only way to bring data pass such a wall will be by accessing data on a microwave oven (aka wiretapping).
Some other core concepts will be rules for handling alternative facts as well as how to apply the term fake news to anything, which does not fit into your scheme.
A White House spokesperson is spicing it up like this: “We will repeal and replace the current way of taking care of data with something else”.
China and Russia is expected to come up with similar GDPx initiatives. As China already has a Great Wall, their implementation will be known as GDPH (General Data Piling via Huawai devices) and Russia is routinely already involved in the US implementation.
Thanks for the April fool message!
