On this episode of Serious Privacy, Paul Breitbarth of Catawiki and Dr. K Royal of Outschool connect with perhaps a controversial player in the privacy game, Gal Ringel, Founder and CEO of Mine. (on Twitter @MineApp and @GalRingel) You might recognize the name from a slew of individual rights requests. We agree that everyone should be able to understand what personal data organisations process about them. However, it can be a challenge to find out how to file these access requests for each and every company that may have your data - there could literally be thousands of companies to write to.
Gal is based in Tel Aviv, Israel, and has a background in military intelligence, software development and investment. He is also a member of the Forbes Technology Council. He saw a need and was inspired to help make it easy both for individuals and companies. In recent years, there have been several initiatives launched to make it easier for individuals to exercise their rights. The Dutch civil rights group Bits of Freedom has for example launched a project called My Data Done Right, that allows you to create your access request letters.
Join us for an enlightening and entertaining conversation with Gal and our mutual love of data protection rights.
