GDPR Compliance for Your Datastore

A presentation at Øredev Developer Conference in in Malmö, Sweden by Philipp Krenn

  • What is the GDPR and what does it actually mean for your business?
  • What are your options for storing data — including not storing information and securing it?
  • What are some of the hands-on steps to take for example with logs that your applications are collecting?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is changing how you can handle data in Europe. But what does this actually mean? The first part of this talk gives an overview of the implications of GDPR, which affects every software project with a European relation. That includes users' right to see, edit, and export their data, the right to be forgotten,... The second part takes a look at what this means for actual software projects with the specific use-case of logging. The main focus here is how to stay GDPR compliant while still being able to use the data for security and operation aspects.

Disclaimer: This talk does not replace legal advice or a deeper examination of the topic. It is just a general overview.
