GDPR training for developers

GDPR Training for Developers

European privacy regulation, GDPR, demands a lot of understanding of privacy. However, since most of the public discussion is more on high level, it doesn't help designing and developing systems to be in compliance with GDPR. This course focuses on the technical aspects of GDPR and it is tailored for developers, architects, quality engineers, and people in other technical roles.

During the training you will learn

  • The definitions of private and personal data
  • How to think and design along with privacy – compare to PCI DSS
  • Data flows
    • integrations
    • residual data
    • backups
  • Controlling data
    • How to meet the users’ rights?
    • Aggregation
    • Automatisation, does it help?
    • How to maintain consistency?
    • Restore and backups, special considerations

  • Privacy by design
    • Data protection as a default and built-in
    • Metadata related to gathering users’ information
    • Managing given consents
