GDPR Effects on US

I just ran across this article. Are there any experts on here that can speak to this and whether the concerns are valid?

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen warned on Tuesday that a European data privacy law taking effect next month may have “unintended consequences” that harm the United States’ ability to protect itself from cyber attacks…

U.S. official warns of ‘unintended consequences’ of European data privacy law

This is probably not the right forum/category for this :slight_smile:

Edit: Because it’s politics

OH. I thought it was about the new law that I’ve seen discussed on here.

Yeah, but the article just refers to Homeland Security talking about collateral(for them) because EU citizens will be able to erase all their personal records from any app (i.e. Facebook). So just whiny politics :slight_smile:
