ETNO ThinkDigital Interview with Stefano Fratta, Telefónica


The guest for this week's #ThinkDigital video interview is Stefano Fratta, Legal Director Consumer, Fintech & Big Data at Telefonica. He explains why confidentiality of information is a key principle, and how his company helps customer get in control of their own data. 

"I think we have the GDPR now, we are working to comply with its provisions. It is already quite demanding in terms of compliance and we do feel that the ePrivacy is needed as far as the protection of the secret of communication. Because we would welcome a single law that covers this principle across the European Union.
We think, however, that most of the provision related to the processing of metadata, they are already included in the GDPR and there is no need to duplicate them in the ePrivacy", highlights Fratta.
