Best Practices for GDPR-Complaint Blockchain

The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) not only applies to European companies but also to companies outside of the EU who conduct business with EU businesses and consumers. According to the EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum, “Government agencies and regulators in Europe have embraced this new [blockchain] technology for its potential innovation in Europe, and have stated many times that while their goal is the protection of individual rights, they are by no means looking to end blockchain."

Will you be prepared for projects that designate blockchain as the best fit; however, the blockchain business network has to be GDPR compliant? This session covers

(1) the regulations that apply

(2) how to implement the Right To Be Forgotten (RTBF) process without sacrificing immutability, and

(3) how automation with smart contracts is critical for success. In essence, challenges can be overcome with the right blockchain architecture and by following recommended best practices.
