General Data Protection Regulation Workshop – Portugal, November 2018
November a GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation workshop
organized by SAP, a project partner, took place in Lisbon, attended by around 30 participants from InteGrid Consortium. The main goal of the session was to learn and understand how to prepare the project for compliance with GDPR. GDPR matters for all partners and demos when personal data is included, even in the form of pseudonyms or just a user.
The focus was on two practical use cases, divided into two group interactive sessions:
• Registration on the gm-hub (grid-market hub)
• KPI transmission with masked personal data
For this propose, the audience was divided into three workgroups from different areas inside the project (developers/architects, project management, consumer’s engagement and legal department) that brainstorm about personal data used in the project demos/applications to be then discussed between all the participants.
In the end, took place a period of reflection about the next steps to take on this matter.
The second day of the workshop consisted of concluding the work started on the first day and the Wrap Up of work done during the whole workshop. The session ended with final Questions & Answers related with GDPR implementation on InteGrid.
GDPR has become very important for every partner that has a way to collect consumer information. This workshop included legal teams of the consortium and was crucial to challenge our technical and organizational measures, to use the highest-possible privacy principles by default and to match the GDPR regulation.
InteGrid understands the importance of improving the protection of our data subjects' rights and to clarify what partners that process personal data must do to safeguard those rights.
