Workshop: Building privacy-conscious projects

Friday 12th April 2019 (afternoon)

Protecting your users’ data is the most important thing you will ever do as a developer, but it isn’t always easy to know where to start.

Last year at PHP Yorkshire, we learned how to integrate the Privacy by Design framework into your development workflow. This year we're expanding on those lessons to learn how to integrate best privacy practice across your project on the governance, project, and code levels. You'll learn how to define a healthy approach to project privacy; integrate privacy as a fundamental project value; evaluate your project for gaps in resourcing and expertise; and access the growing body of code, design, and resource libraries available to help you along the way.
