Developing And Designing For Privacy

Protecting your users’ data is the most important thing you will ever do as a developer, but it isn’t always easy to know where to start. With GDPR, ePrivacy directive and upcoming legislation initiatives to regulate the use and collection of data, as designers and developers, we need to know how to design and build to avoid legal battles down the road.

In this webinar, you'll learn:

  • how to define a healthy approach to user privacy;
  • integrate the Privacy by Design framework into your workflow;
  • learn about current and upcoming privacy legislation;
  • and pick up a few tools to help you evaluate your work for best privacy practice.
