GDPR and Decentralized data security

April 26, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+9

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enforceable from 25 May 2018. The aim of GDPR is to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union. GDPR applies to any organisation anywhere in the world that offers services to people in the EU, or that collects and analyses data tied to EU residents.

GDPR will have a significant impact on organisations on how private data are managed with potentially very large penalties for violations of up to 4% of global revenue or EUR 20 million.

The aim of the talk is to stimulate discussions on how to make decentralised systems such as blockchain compliant with GDPR.
