OAIC to hold de-identification workshop

Privacy Commissioner Timothy Pilgrim will join a panel of experts to discuss data de-identification and privacy at the GovInnovate summit next month.

The half-day workshop will explore the potential, risks and strategies of de-identification, including legal, privacy and technical dimensions.

The panel will explore whether de-identification can be considered to be a privacy enhancing tool, whether data is a “toxic asset” and the factors supporting or impeding the ability to harness the potential of de-identified data.

Another key topic will be obtaining community confidence in de-identification.

Pilgrim will be accompanied by experts including Privacy Analytics founder and CEO Dr Khaled El Emam, Data61 group leader for data platform engineering Dr Stephen Hardy and Data Republic CEO Paul McCarney.

Rounding out the panel will be ABS GM for strategy and partnerships Gemma Van Halderen, Salinger Privacy Director Anna Johnston, the University of Melbourne’s Dr Vanessa Teague and NSW Data Analytics Centre CEO and Chief Data Scientist Ian Oppermann.

The workshop will be held on 16 November at the Crowne Plaza Canberra at 9 am, as part of the events scheduled for the third day of the GovInnovate summit.
