Founded in 2011, the Personal Data Ecosystem Consortium advocates a user-centric approach to managing personal data. We believe that, in order for the Internet economy to continue delivering on its promise, the needs of individuals, companies, and governments must all be respected. Accomplishing this will require the creation of new business models, legal frameworks, and norms of behavior.
PDEC participates in both national and international standards bodies, provides industry education, and engages in research. We are membership based and welcome individuals, startups, and enterprises to join. The Learning Lab provides a forum for policy and technical collaboration around personal clouds and other user-centric technologies.
