Practical privacy - GDPR explained

Talk at Dutch PHP Conference 2017 (English - US)

Rating: 5 of 5

In recent years we've seen a growing awareness of privacy issues, particularly in the wake of Edward Snowden's revelations. The 2015 collapse of the safe harbour agreement (making it illegal to store data on EU citizens in the US) was patched up with Privacy Shield in 2016, but that's on shaky ground too. The EU's tough new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come into force in May 2018, raising privacy & data protection standards enormously, and massively increasing exposure for companies on both sides of the Atlantic.

All too often legal departments have no contact with developers, and the only time the right conversations happen is when something has gone horribly wrong and it's too late. We need to fix this - developers need to be aware of legal responsibilities because it's implementation details that matter, and that's what this talk is all about.

We will cover what makes the GDPR different, how it changes what happens at the developer and sysadmin level, and what steps you will need to take to conform to the standards.

This was exactly the talk about security I was looking for. A good starting point to get ready for May next year.

Slightly disappointed though that no actual practical development impact was discussed (for instance: how are cloud providers handling it or is it mandatory to have a database per country). Overall it was still a really good talk from an experienced speaker.

Found the talk interesting in what the impact could be on any service.

Would have loved some more examples how to deal with the regulations, but overall the speaker had a nice flow in the talk itself.

As an ardent privacy advocate in Australia, I was looking forward to this talk, and hearing about the European aspects and changes to privacy principles, and I was delighted with the information Marcus provided. He succinctly detailed both historical and current trends in relation to legislation and regulations, and their implications on businesses and the public.
