Event description

Description

For decades, federal statistical agencies have striven to balance the legal and ethical obligations to protect the confidentiality of data subjects with the need to provide informative statistics and access to data for secondary analysis. In recent years, balancing these objectives has become increasingly difficult. The digital revolution has seen an explosion in the growth of available data, both from public and private sources, which ill-intentioned actors could use to compromise confidentiality protections.

This workshop will discuss new approaches to protecting data confidentiality, with a particular focus on methods that offer formal guarantees of privacy protection, like differential privacy. Discussions will cover the policy and implementation issues from both provider and user perspectives, including the promises and limitations of using formal privacy methods.

Session 8 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm on Friday, June 7 is scheduled to include 12 five-minute presentations (2 or 3 slides) for people to summarize their privacy research, problems, experiences, and solutions. We are considering adding a few poster sessions at lunch time.

Below is an application for your speed or poster talk to be included on the program. The selected presentations will include discussions of needed research to assure the protection of different data types, ongoing research to address protection of difficult data types, experiences in developing interim and long-term solutions. Please return the application to Nancy Kirkendall at NKirkendall@nas.edu.
