PRINCE 2 Foundations
With the unprecedented technical possibilities for gathering, storing and combining data, I believe that we must find ways to ensure this wealth of data is not misused. I am a member of the Commissie Persoonsgegevens Amsterdam, an independent body of experts that was appointed to advise on complex and sensitive issues related to personal data.
I think that we (corporations, consultants, developers) are led too much by what is legally allowed and will most of the time only do the minimum to adhere to the applicable laws and legislations. Instead, I think there is a need for a philosophical, values based approach to the challenges we face.
If it is new, I want to know about it.
Anything from new tax regimes to how to smartly structure your business. Out of interest for the new DBA legislation in the Netherlands, I have written a whitepaper in English with my take on impact for contractors.
