The era of Privacy beyond GDPR and the toolset providing you peace of mind

Session details

Beyond GDPR, there is an opportunity to build a competitive advantage. We've seen firsthand how being more transparent with users and giving them greater control over the processing of their personal data, while exhibiting responsibility and professionalism, can become a value proposition for your organization. 

The Facebook–Cambridge Analytica scandal was a game-changer. Since then, the global awareness of privacy has been heightened and thanks to GDPR the potential impact of improper personal data handling is higher than ever. In addition to the first wave of fines of GDPR big data leaks - British Airways, T-Mobile, Quora, Marriott, Google, and Orbitz as some examples of the major culprits - the topic has continued to remain relevant in the news and made more and more people aware of data protection issues. 

As the maintainers of the Drupal GDPR module, an open source personalized cookie consent solution and other privacy-related solutions, we realized quite early on how important it is to have a strategy in place. In this session, our aim is to summarize our experiences and to give you an overview of the existing tools you can use to gain not only peace of mind in working towards compliant, but also giving our listeners an opportunity to generate value for their sites and users

Our session will be a major update and revamp of our session presented at the DrupalEurope in Darmstadt.

Drupal apprentices

The best people to train new developers are developers

The Drupal Apprenticeship Scheme will be running a London intake in March. If you are interested in hiring an apprentice or know someone who would benefit from the scheme please get in touch via the link below.

  • Created and run by experienced developers
  • Teaches core skills and best practice
  • Extensive support for businesses and teams

We are also really keen to hear from people who might be interested in mentoring, training and helping us to develop and review training materials to make sure they stay absolutely current and relevant.
