Privacy by design

We now have to obey the law and comply with GDPR, ensuring people’s data are securely stored, we track who has access to it and if the client requests to review, update or remove their data, we should do so in an automated fashion. But, are you there yet? Chances are, there’s still a long way to go.

In this talk I will address some of the challenges we solved in greenfield projects as well in old, legacy applications. We introduced “privacy by design” as just another “by design” mantra we already had build in our workflow and as we worked on the project, we applied it everywhere when we saw user data (personal or not) was processed. This ensured that all data was handled and treated the same way and allowed the business to reorient themselves again to be creative in approaching their customers.
