Re: Staffing firms
@BrianV: It's really quite a tradeoff to compare either side of the pond, isn't it?  On the one hand, as an American, I can see the benefits of the "right to be forgotten" in this increasingly digital age.  On the other hand, as an American, I am VERY grateful for the speech freedoms and other freedoms that we so often take for granted yet are -- quite frankly -- unavailable in even more democratic EU members like Germany and France.

Re: Staffing firms
Too true. This kind of thing is one of the protections GDPR hopes to afford EU citizens ("the right to be forgotten"). I think eventually we will see similar protections everywhere, and enforcement aside, those orgs that can ID and get rid of PII that they don't need will have a clear advantage over those that can't.

Staffing firms
The worst part is if you've ever worked with a staffing firm.  A lot of those jerks hold onto your data in perpetuity.  No.  Matter.  What.

I know a number of people in my professional circle who were pretty peeved at and had brusquely severed their relationships with a particular large staffing firm that shall rename nameless -- and, MANY years later, found their data compromised in a data breach, despite requesting (demanding?) that their information be deleted.
