IT Pro 20/20: How regulation is shaping innovation
The fifth issue of IT Pro 20/20 looks at how new rules are forcing companies to change the way they do business
Welcome to the fifth issue of IT Pro 20/20, our digital magazine that brings all of the previous month's most important tech issues into clear view.
Each month, we will shine a spotlight on the content that we feel every IT professional should be aware of, only in a condensed version that can be read on the go, at a time that suits you.
To coincide with the second birthday of the General Data Protection Regulation, this month we take a look at the role of regulation in innovation. Rather than focus on GDPR principles and the importance of compliance, we thought it would be far more valuable to show how new rules are working to promote, and in some cases moderate, new technology and ways of thinking.
Our lead feature looks at the nature of corporate travel and how future regulations, as well as societal changes introduced as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, are likely to redefine what it means to travel for business. We also look at how authorities are attempting to rein in the development of cutting edge technology and whether it’s even possible to police something like an algorithm.
For those businesses confused about data laws in a post-Brexit UK, we’ve also put some of the most common issues to a panel of data protection lawyers to assess what the regulatory landscape might look like after the end of the transition period in January 2021.
As ever, you’ll also find a roundup of the four biggest stories of the month that are likely to reverberate throughout 2020.
The next IT Pro 20/20 will be available on Tuesday 30 June. Previous issues can be found here.
