Strong end-to-end data life cycle encryption
A complicating issue that you briefly touch upon is about data ownership. When partners share data, how do you maintain control? Or if you are part of a system of systems, like e.g. a smart city application, where you provide data "upwards" in the system hierarchy, but you still want to control it so that it doesn't leak to your competitors "sideways"? Or you want to have different pricing on specific data elements depending on usage and users in this ecosystem of systems?

I strongly believe in encryption as the mechanism that needs to be fully implemented, as you point out. A good granular and distributed encryption model that can handle the complicated key sharing needed can also solve many of the other issues I mention.

Human Resource
The rules of an HR department share in this --- and some departments interface badly with the IT sector.  In a position I left in July of this year, i still had access to email (potentially everything) for about 2 weeks.  The insider threat is very real when it comes to terminated employees, who find any number of reasons to take whatever they can before being walked out of the door.  And HR policies can be awful.  When someone is fired or let go, RULES should come into effect RIGHT THEN AND THERE.  Inventory clean up, preservation of data, legal hold, and elimination of login and access rights WITHIN 30 MIN if possible.
