Conference Board Webinar

February 4, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join de-identification expert Luk Arbuckle for a Conference Board Webinar:

Preserving Privacy Through Anonymization

In a world where business is run and lives are lived on the internet, our personal information is continuously being captured by a host of electronic databases. People across the planet have massive amounts of data on their health, financial status, and buying habits collected everyday—and there is increasing pressure to make this data available not only for individuals, but for organizations as well.

New techniques such as ‘anonymization’ offer a way to securely use data in an environment where the line between personal VS private information is continually blurring. But how will it be used effectively and safely? What can be done to absolutely ensure we manage the risk of releasing data while preserving individual privacy?

Webinar Highlights

Join us for this 60 minute session as Luk Arbuckle describes how you can unlock this valuable data while still protecting individual privacy. Luk will answer questions such as:

  • What is anonymization, and what does it mean in terms of gaining analytic insight?
  • What are the different ways data containing personal information can be unlocked safely?
  • What can be done to manage the risk of re-identification?
  • What are the differences between data masking, de-identification, and anonymization from an international standpoint?
