Topic: GDPR and DevOps: Building privacy by design and default

In May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force. It's getting pretty sensational headlines regarding the scale of the legal and technical challenges ahead for tech folk like us, as well as the potential penalties. I will examine the technical challenges posed by one key aspect of the GDPR to general software development: “Privacy by design and default”.

• Is DevOps suitable for highly regulated environments?
• What effect will the GDPR have on the DevOps movement?• Could the GDPR kill DevOps?
