Speaking at the 2013 Privacy by Design User Forum Tomorow

Tomorrow, I’ll be speaking at the 2013 Privacy by Design User Forum in Toronto, CA.

Only have time for a quick note as I rush off to the airport, but the event is described at as follows:

“This unique event will provide new and current users of PbD insight, direction, and real-life examples to assist in the application of Privacy by Design principles. Whether you are from the public or private sector, this event has something for you!

What makes the concept of Privacy by Design so powerful, but also challenging to implement? When looking for solutions Organizations typically look for, and employ “top-down” solutions that provide for a detailed set of requirements and implementation targets. Where as, Privacy by Design is an organic approach that provides organizations with a tailored framework, placing a premium on leadership, motivation, and direction versus a detailed implementation plan.

Drawing on a wide-range of case-studies you will learn not only how organizations from around the world are leveraging PbD, but how you can as well…creating a positive sum environment for your initiatives that involve personal information in some form.”

My talk is called Big Data and Big Privacy
Here’s the description

“Big Data derives economic value from its use of personal information to such an extent that if personal information is “the new oil,” then Big Data is the machinery that runs on it. However, like our current dependence on fossil fuels, Big Data’s current use of personal information is unsustainable.

Over time, privacy-respecting big data systems will have to incorporate privacy-by-design mechanisms including data anonymization, homomorphic encryption and user-centric identity systems.

This session will describe an implementation of user-centric identity using personal clouds on the Respect Network as well as the related Respect Connect single sign on and permissions management services. The session will explain how four-party identity federation, trust frameworks, reputation systems and semantic data and authorization technologies can infuse Big Privacy into the world of Big Data.”
