It is far more complicated to implement then people realize. Everything from the syncing of systems and how it's all stored, legacy systems that are built on monolithic applications and just the sheer volume of data collected in multiple areas - it's actually a nightmare for the technologists to implement. I mean if your data is stored across 15 different systems at a company - the implementation of the delete function alone is complex. Especially when you have some systems that are ancient in modern terms. Then there is the actual data privacy agreements.... Simple in terms of summing the focus... sure. Simple in reality, not even close. I'm not usually big on govt involvement but in this case I agree. Do some research on digital twins and how much data organizations have on you. Do some research on the work Troy Hunt has done in just collecting hack data. Most companies have no clue they have been hacked, in the last 6 months alone he's had to notify big corporations they had been hacked. Sorry but companies storing insane amount of data just because they can, and one day might find use for it, is not a good thing. Hacks are so prolific that I have literally had a credit card hacked that had not even been activated by me yet. SO no the storing of large amounts of endless data in the way companies have been doing it is not good for us not at all.
