War is 90% information.
~Napoleon Bonaparte
Data = Power
WordPress is for a free internet
● WordPress is a bastion of the free internet
● Stands for equal opportunity, to allow anyone to bring a great idea to life
no matter where they are.
● We must stand for ethical data practice. To protect the vulnerable.

Data is Essential
● Understanding your market
● Cost saving / time reduction
● Product development
● Enhanced service
Being a Good Data Steward
● Data awareness is growing, and consumers are becoming far more
sceptical
● This is an opportunity to build consumer trust.
Ethical

Legal
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new
regulation that acts as an addendum and overhaul of
the European Union's (EU) existing data privacy laws
Does GDPR apply to me?
- Any company processing the personal
data of subjects who are in the Union.
- It doesn’t matter where the
company is located.
Do I really need to follow?
● Previous fines under the DPD were much smaller, up to £500k in the UK.
● Now, failure to comply can result in fines up to €20 Million or 4% of global
revenue, whichever is more.
● Enforced Internationally.
Major Changes
Data Types
Consent
Breaches
New Rights
Data Types
● IP address and mobile IDs now included as personal data.
● Geolocation data.
● Sensitive personal data
○ Health, sexual orientation, race, religion, political opinion.
○ Also includes biometric data - fingerprints, retina scans, genetic data.
Consent
● Explicit consent must be obtained, no more pre-ticked boxes and vague
statements.
● Revoking consent must be just as easy.
● GDPR applies to some data already collected.
○ Some companies will need to re-establish consent.
● Must be used only for the purpose it was collected.
Breaches
● Companies have a 72 hour deadline to report data breaches to their
relevant Data Protection Authority.
● Breach must be reported to users/customers without “undue delay”.
● Due to this difficult clause, companies will need reporting policies and
procedures, as well as breach templates.
I just want my phone call
My New Rights
● Data subjects are able to request to be forgotten. I.e. The right to erasure.
● The right to restrict processing
● Data Portability
● Knowledge of profiling
WordPress Core
● WP 4.9.6 Release implemented a set of changes to
help site owners with compliance
● Comment Consent (check language)
● Data export and erasure feature
● Privacy policy generator
● Gaps in localisation
Leo Postovoit
So what should I be doing?
Next Steps
● Check your plugins
■ Google Analytics
■ Email opt in
■ Cookie consent
● Create a Privacy Policy
● SSL and Encryption
The most important questions
● What data am I collecting?
● Where am I storing it?
● Why am I collecting it?
● Did I get proper permission to have it?
What kind of future do we want?
