California, recently, has passed a digital privacy law granting consumers more control over and insight into the spread of their personal information online, creating one of the most significant regulations overseeing the data-collection practices of technology companies in the United States.
There is a lot of regulatory activity at a national and international level that affect how we build and operate websites. As is often the case with regulatory text, information and plan to action is not clear cut and often developers, designers and product owners have to navigate a minefield.
This talk aims to put some structure around the current regulatory and compliance requirements of websites and explore where we are headed. It is aimed at people who build, maintain and operate Drupal websites and plans to cover the following areas:
- Where are we now (GDPR, ePrivacy Directive, Accessibility Directive, Geo-blocking Regulation)
- Where are we headed (new ePrivacy Regulation)
- What tools are available in the Drupal ecosystem
- How can you keep tabs on future requirements
We will explore in more detail what is required for a website to be compliant, now and in the future, in the following areas:
- General Data Protection Regulation
- Cookie compliance
- Accessibility compliance
