Your Data Safe is a GDPR compliant data management and rewards platform. The European Commission estimate EU personal data market to reach 1 trillion euro by 2020. GDPR came in force at May 25th 2018.

According to the White Paper, there is a YDS Pure Data Strategy which aim to create and capture a Pure Data Source, create a Pure Data Collection Model (capture consumer data through the incentivisation of data sharing) and redistribute the value by sharing revenues among customers and the YDS platform.
There are four key areas of YDS:
- YDS Network -token based GDPR compliant personal data rewards platform;
- YDS Academy -cloud based education and training platform;
- YDS Virtual DPO -secure management of GDPR policies and procedures along with a virtual data protection officer;
- YDS Cloud -encrypted cloud facility for file sharing and storage.
They got two distinctive markets, first is B2B (business to business) offering GDPR services, data sales and affiliates, second one is B2C (business to customer) using the consumer platform.
This IPO is an interesting one, and i will follow it closely in the future. GDPR compliance is still something new for most of the companies, and many of them are training their employee in order for them to understand more about data privacy.
