Blockchain and GDPR – How do you forget what cannot be forgotten? (D22a)

DPR has an inherent “right of erasure”, or the right to be forgotten. A person has the right to request that their data be removed from processing, storage, or use. But Blockchain’s main premise is that you cannot forget, alter, or change what has been entered. It’s an append-only ledger, by design, and by default. With so many organizations using blockchain, how can you be compliant with GDPR, and still utilize blockchain to make transactions safer and resilient? Or to take cryptocurrency as a payment, when, again, it involves PII? In this interactive talk, the presenters will discuss several strategies to do so, and the problems inherent with each and all of them. We encourage audience participation!!!
