Abstract: 

The Data Privacy Vocabulary (DPV) enables expressing machine-readable metadata about the use and processing of personal data for declarative use in systems, documents, processes, and logic for assisting with requirements of legal compliance, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The DPV is the most extensive collection of its kind, a community effort, an output of W3C DPVCG, and is open and available at https://w3id.org/dpv.

Harsh(vardhan) is a Postdoctoral Researcher at Trinity College Dublin exploring the application of semantics to real-world challenges associated with privacy risks, legal and regulatory compliance, and consent. His PhD (Computer Science, Trinity College Dublin) explored the application of linked data and semantic web technologies towards GDPR compliance, with a particular focus on consent and provenance. He currently co-chairs the W3C Data Privacy Vocabularies and Controls Community Group (DPVCG) -- which works on creating interoperable vocabularies for personal data handling based on legal and practical requirements, and the W3C Consent Community Group (CONSENT) which has recently started its work on improving the experience of digital consent and consenting. He also contributes to ISO/IEC efforts on consent and privacy standardisation through the National Standards Authority of Ireland.
