The impact of the GDPR on Blockchain & SSI – Silvan Jongerius – Webinar 23

Silvan Jongerius is the Managing Partner at TechGDPR a boutique consultancy for data protection, privacy, and GDPR in deep tech with a strong focus on blockchain. He is also the Founder and President of BerChain a non-profit organization aimed at connecting the blockchain scene in Berlin and promoting Berlin as the blockchain capital.

Building on the experience of consulting many blockchain projects with GDPR, Silvan Jongerius will talk about the specific challenges and opportunities of the GDPR related to self-sovereign identity. He will provide a high-level introduction to privacy, data protection and the requirements of the GDPR and their interpretation, to give the attendees an overview of the regulatory situation.

After this introduction, we will explore the particularities of this regulation relating to decentralized technology, blockchain, immutable ledgers and in particular self-sovereign identity solutions. Naturally, there are many challenges, but there are also opportunities, perhaps even to over-comply on the GDPR and setting a new standard for meeting its principles.
