The Case for Good UX
What if all this vulnerability to hacking and lax data governance controls comes down to everyone collectively saying: “f*#k it?!”
Forms are annoying; checklists are annoying; going through the motions in low-risk environments wears down resolve to follow protocol in high-risk situations. And no one has a clue what the collection statements of end-user agreements mean or say.
The end-to-end design of essential data governance processes need to start with one thing in mind: people need to do this stuff. If you make it hard or annoying then you get zero buy-in. So make it easy, and make logical sense. And explain the need for certain actions if they could conceivably be interpreted as superfluous.
This is something I hardly hear any mention of (until I saw the article above). But this is a big deal. With regulations like GDPR rolling out across the globe, there are millions of people who will need to follow some mundane process to ensure compliance.
A unique selling point is to honestly say: our solution is easy.
