Blockchain and GDPR

Speaker:  Salman A Baset – New York, NY, United States
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy


The European Union’s ("EU") General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"), which went into effect on 25 May 2018, is the most significant overhaul of EU data protection rules in 20 years. It imposes stringent requirements on companies that collect, store, or process data about EU data subjects, regardless of whether their systems are in the EU.

This talk will outline some of the blockchain properties that represent challenges from a GDPR perspective, describes various approaches for readying blockchain solutions for GDPR, and outlines the need for a robust governance process. It will also describe GDPR considerations for architects of blockchain solutions involving Hyperledger Fabric.
