GDPR Compliance and Open Source Projects
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives citizens additional control over their personal data. While the regulation thoroughly describes data subjects rights and the obligations of data controllers and processors, it does not offer any means of helping data controllers and data processors achieve compliance. Free and open-source projects are affected as well - this session presents some of the key aspects of the EU GDPR and highlights best practices for achieving compliance.
