Aim of this master thesis was to find out practical approaches to deal with GDPR’s principle of data protection by design and by default in iterative software development.
Therefore, a literature review has been given, containing different technical approaches from different academic sources. Also, relevant cultural context was highlighted.
In the empirical part, theoretical approaches from literature have been tested for practical relevance.
From the findings it can be derived, that technical approaches found in literature show low practical familiarity and relevance. However, parts of the cultural context chapter could be verified, as for example methodology of privacy impact assessments.
It can be concluded that the topic is still immature and expected to continue to grow.
