Why do you think it is important to teach and train developers in data management skills?
Developers are highly skilled in software development, but not in legal and regulatory matters in every country in the world. These laws differ by country, and change without notice. Software must comply with these laws or face severe economic fines. Training is essential to avoid issues.
