In our volatile and uncertain political times, developers can play a crucial role in protecting the safety and privacy of those who use the things we build. Whether you enjoy the support of an employer or work on your own as a freelancer, an informed regard for data protection must become a part of your development workflow.
This talk will provide a practical toolkit which draws on current and upcoming data protection regulation (including GDPR), development frameworks, and recognised best practices in protecting personal data to inspire attendees to integrate a healthy approach to privacy into everything they do.
Those who attend the talk will learn how to:
Think proactively about developing for privacy and user protection;
Adopt protective workflows and business practices;
Understand that privacy and user protection are everyone's responsibility;
Feel empowered to challenge things which may put people at risk.
