People who hold data about EU citizens (and who like not being in prison).
Do you hold data on EU citizens? If so GDPR applies to you.
From the 25th May 2018 organisations who fail to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures that ensure and demonstrate that they are compliant will be liable for a fine of €20M or 4% of annual global turnover – whichever is GREATER. Also, prison.
As a professional who works with data it is wise to ensure that you understand GDPR.
DISCLAIMER: I am not a lawyer.
Let me repeat: I AM NOT A LAWYER.
I am not qualified to give legal advice. However, I do know a thing or two about delivering software. In this talk I will bring your attention to the main aspects of GDPR and discuss some of the consequences this has on the use of production data and database lifecycle management (DLM).
I will focus on technical problems that we need to address. You can (and should) hire your own lawyers to provide legal advice.
Why I Want to Present This Session:
Like most of us – I’m not an expert in compliance legislation. I am a database DevOps/DLM consultant. I like shipping updates, not reading legal documents. However, those law things impact my work.
Because developers like testing with production or “production like” data. If they don’t have realistic data people tend to utter the words “it works on my machine”.
So I’ve been thinking about how to support people to write and test SQL code effectively while attempting to stay compliant with the new legislation. I’d like to share what I have learned, from the perspective of a DevOps consultant, rather than that of a lawyer.
As I’ve said before – I’m not a lawyer, I don’t claim to be a lawyer, don’t sue me.
