The glorious uncertainty: Backup world is having a GDPR moment


Re: Not my field of expertise

Keep a log of those people who have successfull requested deletion.

If you restore a backup, re-run deletions from the time of the backup.

That log would be covered by legitimate interest.

Not sure your last point applies but I note only someone restoring data needs to be able to read the log and entries can be removed after the retention period for the data is reached.

Seems like a pragmatic solution to me.
