(Representational image)CCO Public domainA 30-year-old Indian student was shot dead in Alabama, United States, on July 24. The victim, identified as Neil Kumar, was working part-time at a gas station convenience store on Highway 10. Visuals from three CCTV cameras in the store show the assailant, dressed in black and face covered, pointing the gun at Neil.One of the videos shows the assailant lurking in the parking lot for a while around 5:55 AM, five minutes before the store opened. In another CCTV footage that shows the entrance of the shop from the inside, the assailant is seen entering the store, pointing his gun at Kumar and robbing the store. The time stamp on the videos revealed that the assailant was in the store for less than a minute. Although the videos do not show any struggle, Kumar was killed almost immediately. Reports state that the arrested suspect has a criminal background. The murder shocked Brundidge with the sheriff telling the media, “It’s been many, many, many years since Brundidge had a robbery/homicide.”Kumar was based in Kerala’s Thrissur. He had gone to the US to pursue his Master’s in Computer Science at the University of Troy in Brundidge, reported The News minute. He had been studying in the US for a year.His parents Purushothaman Kumar and Seema and his sisters Neema and Natasha flew to Alabama for Neil’s funeral.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 4 min read March 15, 2017 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Though convenient, automotive transportation can be deadly. Over 35,000 people lost their lives in traffic accidents in 2015 (the last full year available), and more than 30,000 fatalities occur annually.Related: Is America Too ‘Safe’ for Innovation? Or Will Driverless Cars Ever Have Their Day? Prevention is is an area where businesses are active — with some working to create autonomous vehicles that eliminate human error altogether, and other, perhaps more practical, startups, striving to assist business owners, teens and other drivers to curb their driving mistakes, some of them fatal.Certainly, autonomous cars are nice, in theory, but a number of logistical and legal hurdles are preventing them from becoming a practical reality. Nor is their widespread adoption likely any time soon.But, what if a new app and technology could prevent up to 86 percent of traffic accidents altogether?Enter ITFT Innovative Technology for Transportation (ITFT) is a North Carolina-based company, currently in its crowdfunding stage, which has designed a Safe Driving System, (SDS) whose up-and-coming app and technology is designed to prevent speeding and reckless driving.The U.S. Department of Transportation has calculated that 94 percent of all traffic accidents are attributable to human error, so the Safe Driving System is designed to reduce those errors through controls and notifications that limit driver behavior.Compatible with any car manufactured since 1996, the Safe Driving System will be targeted primarily toward teenagers (and their reasonably worried parents). When the SDS is installed, parents will receive alerts whenever their teens drive over a designated speed threshold and when they make it to their destinations safely (or, less happily, when an accident has occurred).Related: Driverless Cars Won’t Make Roadways Perfectly SafeThe technology, however, also applies to businesses: It will be available to employers to keep track of their company vehicles and employee-drivers.Plus, individuals can use the SDS to gain a better awareness of their personal driving habits and to block distracting apps on their mobile devices (while they retain access to necessary phone and navigation functions).ITFT is further working on a “panic button,” designed for integration with ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft. If pressed, the panic button will simultaneously alert local authorities and force the vehicle to come to a stop, while recording video and audio of the scene. Then, the door will automatically unlock, allowing the passenger to exit safely. The button will be available for both drivers and passengers.The competitionITFT isn’t the first company developing technology designed to help drivers and prevent traffic accidents, but it is one of the only solutions capable of issuing both speed and reckless driving alerts. Zubie, for example, was designed as a GPS tracker for teenage drivers, but can’t alert parents when their teenagers are going over the speed limit.Instead, its technology is designed to send alerts when the car goes over a manually set speed. Hum, by Verizon, works similarly.Almost every solution now on the market will come with a monthly or yearly fee, usually in the neighborhood of $10 per month. The founderThe founder of ITFT, Matthew Godley, has said he was inspired to create the system after experiencing the deaths of community members in traffic accidents. Still relatively young, Godley, now 24, has assembled a team of engineers, innovators and advisors to help make his vision a reality.Start EngineCurrently, ITFT is listed on Start Engine, a crowdfunding website designed to help entrepreneurs meet their fundraising goals with the help of the general public. Until the offering deadline of April 2, 2017, investors can purchase up to 100,000 series B non-voting common shares of the company at a price of $10 per share. The future of accident prevention Chances are, the SDS is just the beginning of a new wave of technology aimed to help control traffic accidents in this country. Some companies are targeting the improvement of vehicles, with higher safety standards, automated elements, and in some cases, full autonomy. However, the other side of the equation is the driver: Until autonomous cars become reality, controlling driver behavior is the best tool available for limiting traffic accidents.Related: This Startup Aims to Make Sure Driverless Cars Don’t Run You OverThe more we learn about our own driving habits and the driving habits of our loved ones, the fewer risks we’ll face in our daily commutes and adventures. And while our dashboards currently provide us with baseline information to guide our operations, new technology like the SDS will help us alter our behaviors and motivate us to drive more responsibly.

With more than 87 million Facebook profiles breached in the now infamous Cambridge Analytica debacle and 145 million credit profiles stolen in the Equifax breach, well over half of Americans are recent victims of data theft. (Of course, you might have been hacked in both breaches, not just one.)During the recent congressional grilling of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, there was much discussion of regulation to strengthen data privacy in the US. While this would no doubt represent a step forward, the reality is that there is already a sweeping suite of data privacy regulation that will go into effect on May 25th, 2018 known as General Data Protection Regulations or GDPR. While the regulation comes from the EU, it will — contrary to popular belief — effect tens of thousands of US-based companies. Zuckerberg himself was grilled on GDPR and, in a revealing candid shot taken of his notes, indicated that Facebook is not yet GDPR compliant.Becoming GDPR compliant requires meaningful investment, but failing to do so could jeopardize your customer relationships while doing so efficiently will help you pull ahead of competitors. Bottom line: GDPR compliance can provide meaningful competitive advantage from a marketing and customer relationship perspective whether required for your startup or not.Disclosure time: I am not a lawyer. I thought about getting a JD once and even bought an LSAT prep book but that’s as close as I came. The advice below is distilled from discussions with lawyers and startup CEOs.Related: The New EU General Data Protection Regulation: Big Data Protection Gets PersonalWhat is GDPR?GDPR is focused on data that can, directly or indirectly, identify an EU resident. It imposes a series of requirements on companies involved with the processing of such data, whether they are controlling the use of that data or merely acting on behalf of another. Here’s a substantive but digestible summary from a British law firm.There are a variety of fairly sweeping provisions around consent, right to erasure, data governance and more which will require significant changes for most startups that are affected by GDPR. Which leads us to the critical question: which startups should care about GDPR?Many CEOs I’ve spoken with think GDPR only applies to EU-based companies. This is not the case. The regulations are “extra-territorial,” meaning they can apply to companies involved with the processing of EU personal data in the context of marketing goods or services and/or monitoring EU individuals, regardless of where they’re based.But the new regulations don’t stop there. They also have “pass-through” components, which means that any company which processes EU data must have a fully GDPR-compliant tech stack. So if you’re a startup based in the US which only serves US-based customers, but some of those customers process EU data, you very well may need to demonstrate GDPR compliance. The GDPR sets out penalties of up to 20 million Euros or 4 percent of global revenue (whichever is higher) for relevant infringements, and regulators with their increased enforcement powers show a keen urge to use them.But potential fines are likely not the most compelling reason for startups to invest in compliance efforts.The most compelling reason for startups to invest in GDPR compliance is to build a competitive moat, allowing them to serve customers who demand compliance and box out competitors who can’t. Over the past six months, I have heard from a growing chorus of startup CEOs whose customers have asked them to demonstrate GDPR compliance. This wave may accelerate after May, particularly for startups that serve more enterprise-level customers. The startups that invest in compliance now will be best positioned to drive a wedge between themselves and competitors in terms of addressable market.Related: A ‘Wait and See’ approach for GDPR Is Going to Be Pricey for U.S. Organizations Doing Business With the E.U.How do startups get compliant?GDPR is a body of regulations which will be applied and interpreted to a specific situation. There is no binary “have it or not” certification program. There is no stamp of approval provided by a third party governing body indicating compliance. As such, startups have to use judgment to determine when they have invested sufficiently to become compliant.The North Star here is, listen to your customers. They will ask for specific items to demonstrate compliance and you should invest to get ahead of those requests. Don’t fall into the trap of over-investing in expensive resources you may not need. Open, ongoing dialogue with customers will help you determine appropriate investment levels, which may change over time as regulation and enforcement evolve.The first step to GDPR complians is assigning an internal champion. This role is played by a variety of functions at startups, from general counsels to product leads. A growing number of startups are hiring compliance leads and justifying the expense in the name of competitive differentiation. Regardless of who it is, a teammate has to have GDPR compliance as a key performance objective. Tiffany Morris Palazzo, general counsel and VP of Global Privacy at Lotame, puts it well: “It’s a mistake in this day and age to not have someone internally who is tasked with thinking about privacy. It doesn’t have to be a lawyer. It does have to be someone with strong accountability.”Step two is conducting an assessment of current compliance. There are a variety of assessment tools out there, from entirely self-guided to full-suite service providers. This guide from the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office is the best assessment overview I’ve come across.If you’re looking for external assessment help, be careful with your selection. There is a plethora of GDPR consultants touting any number of services. Often, they are accustomed to dealing with larger companies and don’t have experience applying GDPR to startups. Further, their incentives are generally aligned with selling more services, so if you go down that path, you’re likely to end up with porridge that’s too hot and a bank account that’s too low. If you decide to hire legal help, work with a lawyer who has both GDPR and startup experience.The key to any assessment and compliance strategy is documentation. You need to assemble a clearly labeled packet of all of the efforts you’ve taken toward compliance. This should be in whichever format you find your customers most commonly asking for. Remember, since there is no GDPR certification document, it’s up to you to convince your customers that you are compliant.While these regulations are likely not what startup CEOs dreamed they’d be spending their time on in 2018, those that do it well will build a competitive moat allowing them to serve customers their competitors can’t. In a world of increasing startup competition, GDPR could be a blessing in disguise. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
