6 Ways Passport API is GDPR Ready

The GDPR is a complex regulation, but at its most basic level it requires organizations to provide “data protection by design and default.” Inversoft’s Passport is built with a powerful REST API that gives developers the tools they need to adhere to the requirements of the GDPR with quickly and easily. On May 23 Inversoft’s CEO Brian Pontarelli presented to Colorado’s technology leaders about how the GDPR and data privacy will affect US companies, and went into detail about how the Passport API is well-suited to help companies stay GDPR compliant and avoid risks of fines and data restrictions for data protection violations.

Principles of Data Protection

Instead of defining explicit processes that could quickly become out of date, the GDPR outlines basic principles to guide data collectors, controllers and processors to establish and maintain data privacy throughout their customer’s lifecycle. This provides a flexible framework of concepts so each company can comply with the regulations in a way that best fits their data structure and usage model.

The Passport API was designed with a similar conceptual framework and provides developers with a toolbox of functionality that can easily do what GDPR demands. In his presentation, Brian outlines the specific code that the Passport API uses to allow developers to quickly implement data-protecting features with minimal effort. He covers some of the most important aspects including:

  1. Providing ALL user data when requested
  2. Deleting ALL user data
  3. Correcting and restricting data for review
  4. Protecting data software and hardware
  5. Identity security for passwords, hashing, and storage
  6. Consent management and history storage
