The GDPR is here. Are you ready? (You need to be!)

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) just went into effect May 25, 2018. So, 1) What is it? And 2) Do you have to care about it? The short answer is: 1) It’s complicated. And 2) Almost certainly, yes. You are probably legally obligated to care about it.

In this session, we’ll talk about the GDPR in general. Why does it exist? What types of information does it cover? Who does it affect? We’ll also talk about the issues you, either as a site owner or as a site builder, need to think about as you’re building and maintaining your sites in order to stay in compliant with the GDPR. Finally, we’ll talk about Drupal-specific tools and strategies to help meet and manage your requirements under the GDPR.

Here are the presentation slides.

Learning Objectives & Outcomes: 

At the end of this session, you should have enough information about the GDPR to meaningfully engage in (or, if need be, start) conversations within your organization about the GDPR and potential strategies going forward.
