The intersection of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDRP) compliance and the disruptive potential of blockchain technology in the financial sector has sparked a critical debate. As data privacy becomes an imperative concern, the compatibility of blockchain’s decentralised and immutable nature with GDPR principles is questioned. In our eBook, we delve into the intricate dynamics between GDPR and blockchain, shedding light on the potential conflicts that arise and offering three distinct solutions to navigate these challenges.
Since its enforcement in May 2018, GDPR has laid the foundation for safeguarding data privacy and protection within the European Union and the European Economic Area. This regulatory framework casts significant obligations on data controllers and processors, encompassing principles like lawfulness, transparency, data minimisation, and accountability. Moreover, GDPR grants individuals rights over their personal data, including access, rectification, and erasure.
The rising prominence of blockchain technology introduces a unique set of complexities. Blockchain, with its decentralised architecture and append-only nature, stands in contrast to GDPR’s tenets. Key dilemmas emerge, including the allocation of accountability within blockchain’s decentralised realm, the challenge of erasure without compromising data integrity, and the clash between blockchain’s continuous data growth and GDPR’s data minimisation principles.
In our eBook, “GDPR Compliance and Blockchain in Financial Services – Friend or Foe”, read more about the interplay between blockchain technology and GDPR compliance in the realm of financial services. We go on to uncover the potential conflicts and challenges that arise when these two worlds intersect, and explore three innovative solutions that can pave the way for a harmonious coexistence between the two.
