About this Episode

In this episode, we discuss, controversially, why data privacy, including regulations like GDPR, are counterproductive and why we would all be better off without the current notion of data privacy.

Our special guest, Ben Malisow, is our 'privacy provocateur' on our show and talks about why he believes we are living an 'illusion of privacy'.

Ben has over 30 years experience in information security and education and is currently a professional certification training lead for SGS Cybersecurity Services, a multinational corporation involved in a wide range of product and process certification/validation.

Some of Ben’s roles have also included professor of English, a computer teacher for troubled teens as well as his extensive experience working with clients such as FedEx, US Special Forces Command, the United Nations, HSBC, and Barclays.

Ben is the author of ''Exposed: How Revealing Your Data and Eliminating Privacy Increases Trust and Liberates Humanity.''

GDPR Now! Is brought to you by Data Protection 4 Business.
