Rethinking product in a privacy by design world

Video of the presentation: https://youtu.be/snExWCKCZZk

Abstract:
Personal data privacy is a hot-button item today. It can often seem overly burdensome for the software developer looking to change the world. Established businesses may look at regulations and current trends in data privacy as negative impacts to product innovation.

This is the wrong lens by which we should look at this.

In this talk, Noble shares opportunities to innovate around the growth in data, the growth in regulations like the GDPR. He shares insights on human-centered design opportunities that can help both independent developer or an established corporation. He presents practical examples to minimize the data you collect and best practices on asking for data in software only when it provides value for the user.

    DEMAND FOR DATA PRIVACY CHANGES HOW WE BUILD
    Progressive disclosure not only limits collection g information you might not
    need. It also introduces decluttered interfaces and focuses your user.
    Only collect information when you need it
    Look at disclosure of what you're using your customers data for as your value
    proposition. An opportunity to be transparent and earn trust.
    Clearly communicate justification of storing data
    Not for the sake of compliance with regulation but understanding that giving
    users access to what you store provides users with additional value.
    Give users agency over their data

    Privacy and utility are complementary.
    POSITIVE-SUM, NOT ZERO-SUM
    Inform your stakeholders to gain user confidence.
    MAINTAIN VISIBILITY &
    TRANSPARENCY

    PRIVACY AS THE DEFAULT SETTING
    Privacy, choice and access are core to
    value proposition, not add ons.
    EMBED PRIVACY INTO DESIGN
    All data is secure at reset and in motion.
    Erased when no longer required.
    ENSURE END TO END SECURITY
    Take action before the fact, not after it.
    PROACTIVE NOT REACTIVE
    It’s about the user. Not the data alone.
