The GDPR lays down an integrated set of rules for data protection; with comprehensive guidelines for enforcement, governance, transparency and citizens’ rights.
The GDPR will have wide ranging implications for every organisation within the EU that processes personal data and any organisation based outside the EU that provides services to the European Market. Basically, it will impact just about everyone.
The Regulation is set to come into force in June, from which time organisations will have two years to implement the changes.
In a recent interview the CEO of Atos, Thierry Breton, talks about the reasons that led his group to develop supercomputers and their work on a quantum computer.
“We are already working with the CEA (The French Alternative Energies Commission) on the computer their scientists will need in 2025” says Breton.
“As current technologies reach the physical limits of the equipment, especially in terms of heat and the speed of light, we will need to overcome these, to go beyond a technological breakthrough and develop a quantum computer for 2030 and beyond.”
