May 23, 2019 — When your website collects personal information, it’s essential that you be a good steward of your users’ data. How you manage that data is under increasing scrutiny. With GDPR in Europe, CCPA in California, and anticipated privacy legislation at the federal level, it’s time to start working on that privacy statement you’ve been putting off.
In this session, we will focus on how to make the plugins you build work with the privacy features added to WordPress core in 2018. Along the way, we will examine key concepts from the “Privacy by Design” framework and discuss easy best practices to keep in mind as you write your code.
The session will have a technical focus rather than a legal focus. It will feature practical examples in which we will build a plugin that supports personal data export and erasure. Code examples will be simple, but will assume some baseline knowledge of PHP.
December 29, 2018 — GDPR, CCPA, Data Breach requirements, DPIA’s… Yeah, it’s a LOT! Worse, there’s a lot of confusing and conflicting information out there regarding what’s changing in the world of privacy laws and requirements. We’re here to clear that up.
A strong privacy framework can strengthen your client relationships while reducing legal liability, arming you to ship better websites and products with ethics and privacy in mind, from day one. When making decisions, it’s important to understand their impacts: The right decisions (with user privacy in mind) to not only reduce your exposure, but also make your website better. It’s not the responsibility of “someone else” to get privacy right, it’s the responsibility of the whole team who builds and maintains your website.
Starting with an overview of laws that are relevant to you and your U.S. business, (what you NEED to know), best practices (what you need to DO), as well as resources for maintaining compliance (where you can turn when you need answers) you’ll see how privacy impacts business and technical requirements of every WordPress site on the internet.
December 13, 2018 — The alphabet soup of relevant data privacy and security acronyms out there can be overwhelming: GDPR, PII, ISO, SOC, FERPA, and more. We’ll discuss the frameworks and laws most relevant to WordPress site owners, best practices, open-source resources, what to look for from your hosts and plugin/theme providers, and share a checklist to summarize it all to help ensure that you are on the right track.
December 7, 2018 — Il y a quelques mois, je me suis attelée à la refonte du site Web d’une association locale. Notre objectif ? Créer un site vitrine protégeant la vie privée de son audience et de ses éditrices et éditeurs, et les informant sur le sujet. J’ai saisi cette opportunité pour me pencher sur la notion de privacy by design, à savoir la prise en compte et le respect de la vie privée de l’internaute dès la conception d’un projet Web. Bien que le RGPD soit passé par là, on le sait, la période est encore peu propice au respect de la vie privée des internautes. Nous verrons comment concevoir un site recueillant le moins de données possibles et les freins à cette démarche, même lors de la conception d’un simple site « vitrine ».
May 5, 2018 — Una visione pratica a quelli che sono gli aspetti rilevanti in tematica privacy quando si vuole sviluppare un sito o una piattaforma basati su WordPress, quali banner per informativa privacy e cookie, trattamento dei dati dei plugin implementabili tramite WordPress e la profilazione degli utenti.
December 2, 2017 — Datenschutz, Privatsphäre, Sicherheitsmythen und UX-Absurditäten in WordPress und um WordPress herum.
November 21, 2016 — Nel 2018 la privacy verrà sostituita dal nuovo regolamento europeo.
Come sviluppare oggi siti che domani non siano da rifare ?
Cosa devono fare i clienti e cosa gli installatori di siti WordPress ?
L’incontro avrà carattere divulgativo: senza paroloni, solo tecniche pratiche e di autodifesa dai clienti che diranno: “tu lo dovevi sapere”, lasciando spazio alle domande.
July 3, 2016 — We are building free software tools that both the public and developers can use to check how a website is doing with regards to privacy and see what measures can be taken (and how). We’ll present this work and also talk about how developers are affected by the new EU data protection laws and the death of Safe Harbor.
April 17, 2016 — Privacy is turning into a big deal, not only for end-users but also for those of us who design the digital environments of Internet users. Last year, Dataskydd.net identified a range of simple measures that can be implemented on a website to vastly improve the privacy protection of its visitors. This year, we continue to promote a privacy-friendly web by building tools for individuals to request implementation of these simple measures from web developers. We will provide an ideological and political incentive for „privacy“ (the why) as well as technical tools for web developers to respect the privacy of visitors (the how).
July 12, 2015 — Sharing data on the web can unlock benefits both for yourself and for others. We’ll explore the different ways data can be published, the advantages of publishing open data and the extra things you can do to make that data more accessible and easier for others to reuse.
