Past Talks

Continuous Research

As privacy regulations like GDPR or CCPA are put into action, how can designers and UX researchers keep the balance between compliance and design?
In this session, I will talk through how I partnered with the Dropbox Privacy team on a number of projects that culminated in a privacy course for the Dropbox team. Anchored by the Privacy by Design Principles, I will touch on:

  • My path and passion for privacy and design.
  • How to integrate user consent within the design process
  • How to balance legal compliance and product requirements, and
  • How you can build transparency and trust with your users by practicing these principles

Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer and my talk is not legal advice.
