Practical privacy - GDPR explained

Session en anglais - Débutant

The EU new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in May 2018, significantly raising privacy & data protection standards. Its effects are being felt around the world, helping users to regain control of their own data outside of Europe too. As part of this, privacy by design provides a primary line of defence between companies and terrible headlines. Learn what developers & project managers need to know about GDPR in this talk.

This talk will give you a rundown on the shortcomings of TLS 1.2 and earlier versions, how and why 1.3 changes things, and what changes you may need to make in your deployments to take advantage of the 1.3 enhancements.
