Celebrating Veterans Day with U.S. Navy vet and Symantec C3 graduate Leslie Washington
Leslie Washington is a firm believer in learning concrete skills. Coming from a big military family, she joined the U.S. Navy after high school, excited about the real world experience and travel opportunities that lay ahead. From standing on plane wings while washing down aircrafts, to organizing facilities for command events, to participating in surveillance flights during Desert Storm, Leslie’s military career was unique to say the least.
Even organizations focused on public benefit regularly collect and store users’ personal information. This means that rules like the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) apply to nonprofits and social good organizations as much as private-sector companies. In fact, nonprofits, philanthropic groups, and foundations are potentially exposed to even greater risk in the event of a data breach or theft, as the reputations they’ve painstakingly cultivated can be tarnished overnight.
This past May, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect. The comprehensive regulations shift the dominant paradigm of online data from an opt-out model, in which users had to take action to control their data, to a privacy by design model where privacy and user control must be up-front and center.
