An Umbraco Privacy Health Check.

Abstract

It’s one year on from the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and as with any anniversary it’s an opportunity to reflect – to take stock of what’s changed in our CMS community and beyond as a result of the GDPR and to mention a few things coming down the line that remind us that the GDPR is a step on the privacy journey.

GDPR sparked interesting conversations, not only in the Umbraco community, but in the wider CMS world as well about how best to meet this challenge – Is the solution process-based? Is it the responsibility of tech to fulfil the requirements? Is there a danger of over-engineering a solution? As with most things, the answer lies somewhere in between and in truth, everyone has a role to play in delivering on both the privacy and security that are the fundamental rights that the GDPR aims to realise.
