Privacy Technology




Big data has the potential to transform the healthcare system. However, to truly unlock this potential, we must be able to collect, analyze, and share data in healthcare repositories in a safe fashion. In this talk, we will examine some of the privacy and security challenges in maintaining large data repositories. I will present attacks against healthcare repositories from the internal and external perspective, and discuss some of the potential solutions that can be used to counter such attacks. Incorporating such mechanisms is crucial to deploying such repositories in a safe and secure fashion.
