Coming Soon: Data Re-identification Webinar

With Ann Waldo, Madeleine Ball & Cinnamon Bloss | November 2016

Re-identification is the process by which anonymized personal data is matched with its true owner. In order to protect the privacy interests of consumers or research participants, personal identifiers, such as names and social security numbers, are often removed from databases containing sensitive information. With more public datasets becoming available, could the re-identification of anonymous people pose a real threat to the use of big data? Join Ann Waldo, Madeleine Ball, and Cinnamon Bloss for a discussion.
