Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has termed the privacy as a human right and expected a global regulation on safety and privacy of the customers to ensure the safe usage of the tech products and services by the end users.
Speaking in BioAsia 2021 while interacting with the Telangana IT and Industries Minister, Satya said that the covid pandemic across the world has accelaerated the digital transformation. While replying on data privacy and security, he said, “So I look forward to a world where we do have, just after all we have food safety laws we have drug safety laws, there will be similarly I think rules and regulations (on data). Hopefully there is a global norm around”.
He also added, “One thing that I would hope for is that we don’t fragment. We are able to whether on privacy or safety, bring together a set of global rules that will allow all of us to both comply and make sure that we know what we build is safe to use”.
Nadella also bats on the strict intolerance towards the lackadaisical behaviour and focussed that companies should design and build products respecting the privacy of the end users. He also praised the spreading of General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) across the world.
