GDPR in Practice with Joshua Prismon

Data privacy policies have changed how software organizations need to operate.

As consumer preferences have shifted in favor of strong privacy, software companies are having to examine their policies around data collection and retention. Many software companies were started in a time with different norms around data. 

Building a new application that is compliant with GDPR is hard. Updating an existing application to align with GDPR is even harder.

Joshua Prismon is chief architect at FICO, a company that builds systems around credit scoring. Joshua joins the show to discuss how a large company like FICO has responded to changing consumer preferences through changes in its software architecture and engineering.
