The goal of this project is to establish an immediate, global response recognizing the importance of Personal Data Management (PDM). It will explore whether one or more existing bodies could undertake such a global task and/or whether a new body should be created.

As parts of an individual’s personal data are shared or taken, that person loses crucial and critical private pieces of his or her identity. Through a more interactive-based, global regulation of an individual’s private data, there could exist an option for each individual to clearly and knowingly choose whether or not he or she is willing to do share such private data, with express consent. If the choice is “I am not willing to allow my personal data to be shared or taken without my consent,” the thesis would outline how organizations could, in full accordance with their duties and powers, protect those who are unaware or unwilling to subject their identify to erosion.

Keywords: personal data management, big data, internet of things, international organizations, global regulation, private data
