“An absolute certainty on which everybody seems to agree is that legislating takes longer than programing,” writes Eduardo Ustaran, CIPP/E, in this Privacy Perspectives blog post. According to one survey, the average time it takes to develop a mobile app is less than five months. “However you look at it, it is difficult to imagine a law being devised, crafted and passed at the same speed at which software developers and engineers do their work,” Ustaran writes, adding, “but whilst technology is always changing, there is something that has not really changed that much for thousands of years: human behavior.”
