Software developers need education! A serious game design approach teaches developers how to implement privacy-preserving software systems

Modern software applications have become increasingly dependent on user data. These systems need data to provide various economic and social benefits to users as well as businesses. Nevertheless, the extensive use of personal data in systems poses a threat to user privacy. Privacy practices and laws (e.g., Data Minimisation (DM), Privacy by Design (PbD) or General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)) exist, but software developers find it challenging to implement privacy-preserving software systems using them. Therefore, privacy engineering methodology (i.e., a systematic approach) needs to be considered for developers to implement privacy into software systems that preserve end-user privacy. This talk focuses on a serious gaming approach as an education and training intervention to helping software developers implement privacy-preserving software systems through the developed methodology.
