GDPR or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Users

Imagine getting a call from your boss during the late hours of a Sunday night. „Our servers were hacked. Usernames, passwords and credit card data was stolen for at least 500.000 users. This is a nightmare! Didn’t you put up protection against this? Come in immediately to assess the situation and do what’s necessary and whatever it is that can be done right now!“

The GDPR will be enforced from May 25th 2018. Organizations in non-compliance will face heavy fines. Organizations need your expertise on how to update their software to handle this.

I will present the GDPR from the standpoint of a developer. You will see why these rules are actually good and why you should care about them. After constant news of hacks and leaks where user’s data is stolen, it is about time to think about what you as a developer can do differently to protect your user’s data. You will leave this talk with a clear idea on how to improve things.

Let’s do this with style!
