Episode 1: Our guest Frederick Richter

Our first guest is Frederick Richter. He is the director of the German Foundation for Data Protection and he gives us insights on how the General Data Protection Regulation has influenced the world and the EU/Germany in particular. Stiftung Datenschutz (Foundation for Data Protection) was established by the German Federal Government in 2013. The non-profit incorporated foundation offers a neutral forum for debates around effective and efficient data policy and develops recommendations for privacy politics.

We will have a look at the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, better known as the GDPR: How has it influenced data protection worldwide? How is data protection handled in other parts of the world? How can we establish international standards? And what will happen next?
