Getting your Blockchain GDPR bulletproof

März 26 @ 10:00 - 18:00 CET

Have you invested into developing a blockchain and are under the impression the GDPR might be the dealbreaker for your product? The consequences of non-compliance could include:

  • Devastating loss of reputation
  • Fines of up to 4% of annual revenue
  • Other regulatory contraints

In this event we will tackle the problem of legal insecurity with blockchain. If you are the CTO of a blockchain-company or a DPO trying to wrap his head around blockchain and the legal requirements that come to this field with the GDPR this event is the place to be!

Based on our previous research Privacy by Blockchain Design scientifically backed by our latest Paper and other works the two authors will shed some light on the following topics:

  • General approach to handling personal data on a blockchain.
  • How to be compliant with the Right to be Forgotten (Art. 17 GDPR), when using Blockchain.
  • Steps to take to be GDPR-compliant with your Blockchain:
  1. Record of data processing
  2. Effective technical and organizational meassures to secure data protection regarding blockchains
  3. Data Protection Impact Assessments

By the end of this workshop you will have all the knowledge and tools to be on the safe side to launch your product without fearing that European regulators will tare you appart, because you will be amongst those blockchain enterprises setting the standards of compliance and data protection in the light of the GDPR.
