Recent data breaches as well as global increase in malicious attacks have resulted in an increase social pressure which has translated into stricter confidentiality and data security in personal data regulation.
Indeed, the General Data Protection Regulation EU which is going to be applied as of May 25 2018 is a sound example of the social pressure on regulators.
Of course, we are globally at the infancy stage of cyber protection. Regulation will only get tougher and those who are not ready and proactive will face crippling fines and or more importantly a possible loss of customer trust.
