The evolution of mobile multimedia computing and artificial intelligence represents a significant challenge in terms of real-time data processing and data protection management. It can be seen in the EU and US, where governments are adapting their regulation laws to meet current and future societal requirements. However, existing solutions provide limited capabilities and operate in isolation, focusing on protecting particular rights of citizens. The main contribution of the article at hand is a novel platform, called PROTECTOR, that protects sensitive data of EU and US citizens according to the rights provided by current EU/US data protection regulation laws. Three case studies prove how PROTECTOR deals with several citizen's rights in two different legislation environments, such as the EU GDPR and the US. Finally, a pool of experiments with a different number of citizens, policies, and data have demonstrated the feasibility of the proposed solution.
