Event description

Description

Please join us Tuesday, December 12th 6-8pm for Privacy Lab!

Uber is hosting (with light refreshments!) at their 555 Market Street, San Francisco location (note: not at HQ).

Our speaker is Marcel van der Heijden.

His topic is: Pseudonymization vs Anonymization: What’s the difference and why it matter?

The general concept of anonymization is often used pretty loosely to describe a whole range of methods of transforming data. This approach often means creating a new data set to eliminate identifying information in the data set for the purpose of making re-identification of individuals impossible. Many examples from research and, more worryingly, "in the wild", exist of presumed anonymized data being not-so-anonymous and sometime trivially re-identifiable.

The upcoming privacy regulation GDPR specifically distinguishes between pseudonymization and anonymization. This is important as pseudonymized data remain entirely subject to GDPR regulations, where anonymized data is exempt of GDPR.

We will outline the difference between pseudonymization and anonymization – both technically and from a legal point of view – and describe a few use cases where this difference has a huge impact.

Logistics notes:
