Engineering Secure and Privacy-preserving Systems

Abstract

In the current digital age, data is continually being collected by organizations and governments alike. While the goal is to use this data to derive insight and improve services, the ubiquitous collection and analysis of data creates a threat to privacy. Furthermore, the digitization and centralization of data creates attractive targets for cyber criminals, with security breaches harming both individuals and organizations. In this talk, we present some of our recent work on engineering privacy-preserving and secure systems. In the healthcare domain, we discuss how to enable privacy-preserving analytics, including techniques for record linkage and exploratory analytics. We also present our work on automatic access control configuration and management which is crucial to maintaining organizational security.
