GLSEC 2018 Theme 

This year the theme is on "Data Protection" or how to keep your company's data and systems safe and secure. The goal is help software developers understand the security risks that are always present whenever dealing with potentially sensitive or personal information, and how to create applications and systems that protect against that risk.

Catch Brian's Session

Find Brian's session, "Doom, Gloom and the New GDPR, What's a Web Developer To Do?in the main event hall at 11:15 am. View the full abstract below:

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect on May 25, 2018. If you haven't heard of GDPR, the summary is that organizations must respect and protect their subject's data at all costs. While this new data privacy regulation originates from Europe, US based companies should reconsider neglecting this on the simple basis of unfamiliarity/geography. Join Brian McKeiver as he explains how this regulation came to be, how it compares to other regulations like HIPPA and PCI in the web world and why GDPR matters to developers and organizations that run enterprise websites. Attendees can expect to learn all of the above plus receive tactics and strategies that help deal with data consent, data portability, the right to be forgotten, and how much responsibility you might have as an agency, or developer, of your customer’s data.
