Forecasting Consent Threat Level in Europe

Consent for online data collection is a squirrelly topic in Europe right now. Leaving aside for the moment whether or not consent ‘aught’ to be required, and if so, how sensitive the data and its use might need to be to warrant this abrasive step, companies are trying to understand the baseline requirements so they can plan and build around them.

Unfortunately, not only are the rules a bit unclear, but close observers also expect the rules to change substantially over the next two years.
