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.

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