GDPR – What do we need to know?

On 25th May GDPR comes into force.  I’ve been learning everything I can about GDPR to ensure my systems adhere to the regulations and will be attending Redgate’s SQL Privacy summit, details and registration here on Friday 18th May in London .  However I’ve been really shocked at the amount of developers I know who say, “GDPR, nothing to do with me”.   

One developer when asked responded with “What’s GDPR?”.

My opinion, rightly or not, is that if you work with data or an application you have a responsibility to understand the requirements and ensure anything you are working on complies.

I’m a long way from being an expert but I know enough to know that I should know about it.
