Date Published:June 20, 2014

In this paper, we apply a Privacy by Design approach to exploring new ideas and solutions that can lead to deployment of privacy-protective and secure biometric one-to-many systems. We showed that new advances in Biometric Encryption (BE) can be complemented with other innovative solutions, such as Cryptographically Secure Biometric Architectures and Biometric Setbase/Weak Links. We […]

Big Data and Innovation, Setting the Record Straight: De-identification Does Work

Author:Ann Cavoukian, Ph.D., Information and Privacy Commissioner, Ontario, Canada; Daniel Castro, Senior Analyst, Information Technology and Innovation foundation
Date Published:June 16, 2014

Properly applied de-identification is an effective tool to protect privacy, but recent criticisms have suggested the opposite. The perpetuation of this myth has the potential to adversely impact health research, innovation and Big Data insights. In order to address the misconceptions surrounding de-identification, the paper examines a select group of articles that are often referenced […]
