Re: Security vs. Privacy
Interesting, why do they have to be on opposite ends (again more rhetorical), we should be able to work together. It seems we need more people from the DevSecOps or SecDev teams with a background in both arenas.

Security vs. Privacy
It makes sense that if Security and Privacy are at opposite ends of the spectrum that there best practice approaches would juxtapose in the same manner.

Microsoft menaced with GDPR mega-fines in Europe for 'large scale and covert' gathering of people's info via Office  


GDPR Fines & Penalties
Country: Netherlands
Industry: Software
Company: Microsoft

Non-compliance: Consent. Microsoft broke Euro privacy rules by carrying out the "large scale and covert" gathering of private data through its Office apps.

It seems like the organizations from the list are Microsoft, Facebook and Google. There have been a number of hacks in the US that are not listed (HPE, Apple, IBM, SuperMicro, NorthrupGrumman, Accenture Federal, Lockheed Martin, NSA, and the list goes on)

Lets look at the timelines - https://carnegieendowment.org/specialprojects/protectingfinancialstability/timeline

From a compliance standpoint, I don't see HSBC, US Credit Union, City of Atlanta, Baltimore, Florida (small cities), OPM, Albany NY (https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/10/politics/ransomware-attacks-us-cities/index.html).
Meanwhile, Baltimore's ransomware attack is one of 22 against state and local government entities so far in 2019, Armor notes. Other victims including Washington, Pennsylvania; Amarillo, Texas; Cleveland Airport, Cleveland, Ohio; Augusta City Center, Augusta, Maine; Stuart, Florida; Imperial County, California; Garfield County, Utah; Greenville, North Carolina; Albany, New York; Jackson County, Georgia; Schools System of Taos, New Mexico; Del Rio, Texas; Atlanta, Georgia; and Leominster, Massachusetts. - Dark Reading

It is good to have policy in place but if we continue to have organizations that don't feel the sting of GDPR, then what are we gaining?
