What’s New? Blockchain as a solution to privacy issues? By Rens Goudsmit, TK Tech
Introduction Amsterdam is one of the world’s most important start-up hubs. Within that ecosystem, there is a need for specialist legal knowledge, because new technologies and developments lead to innovative, interesting and complex legal issues. TK Tech is an Amsterdam-based tech hub of TeekensKarstens attorneys, specialized in tech law. TK’s tech lawyers are experts in fields such as privacy (GDPR), intellectual property law, IT law, M&A and new tech. In the upcoming period, TK Tech will update the members of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce on relevant and interesting (legal) tech issues. To kick off: privacy and blockchain, where do they meet? GDPR The GDPR became enforceable May 2018. The GDPR should not be about avoiding fines, but about how your company is able to showcase their responsibility and transparency regarding data protection. It creates business opportunities. Insight in the way personal data is handled allows companies to use the available data in a correct and efficient way. Therefore, data protection should be of the upmost importance to innovative businesses. The GDPR applies to all personal data processing activities. It aims at protecting EU citizens’ data privacy and ensuring the free flow of personal data between member states. In this context it expands the rights of data subjects. Among these rights is the right to be forgotten, entitling the data subject to have its data erased, cease further dissemination of it and stop third parties from processing it. Subsequent, it requires companies to prove their compliance to the GDPR. Therefore, accountability is the magic word around the GDPR. Blockchain One of the new technologies which requires special attention when it comes to privacy is blockchain. Some people might say it is the most important invention since the internet, while others say it is highly overrated and a solution looking for a problem. Whatever may be, blockchain may be relevant for many of us. In general, blockchain is a ledge (database) of immutable data. This record is managed by a number of servers that keeps track of all transactions on the ledge. Blockchain does not need a central authority and once data is added to the chain, it cannot be undone. There are public blockchains and private blockchains. The first is open for everyone to read, write and participate, the latter is only open to authorized participants. Blockchain is used for a wide variety of applications. The characteristic features of a blockchain are:
- Transparency: all participants can view and review all data and transactions;
- Sharing and decentralisation: several copies of the blockchain coexist on different computers;
- Disintermediation: all decisions are made by consensus between participants, without a central arbitrator.
