In our volatile and uncertain times, developers like you can play a crucial role in protecting the safety and privacy of the people who use the things you build. Whether you enjoy the support of an employer or work on your own as a freelancer, taking steps to safeguard user privacy must become a part of your everyday development workflow.
This talk will provide a practical toolkit which draws on current and upcoming data protection regulation, the Privacy by Design development framework, and recognised best practices in protecting personal data to inspire attendees to integrate a healthy approach to privacy into everything they do.
We are people of enormous power and influence over the open web. As a tech policy and regulation specialist, I empower you to use that power wisely. I support digital professionals in understanding the political, legal, and regulatory issues which impact their work, assist them to participate constructively in the regulatory sphere, and represent them directly to governments. I advocate for an open web built around international standards of human rights, privacy, accessibility, and freedom of expression. I fight for edge cases, the little guys, and the big pictures. Let’s talk.
