Reid said, “ Businesses must protect the personal data and privacy of our citizens for all forms of transactions. And non-compliance can prove to be very costly. At the same time, data has to be open to afford opportunities for companies to create new and better products and services based on data analysis and analytics, including the full deployment of AI.”
