Privacy Rethinks and the Example of Privacy-Preserving Marketplaces

Latanya Sweeney, Distinguished Career Professor of Computer Science, Technology and Policy at Carnegie Mellon University

Tuesday, June 28, 12:30 pm
Berkman Center, 23 Everett Street 

Societal demands to share large-scale collections of detailed personal information are driving new directions for privacy. These rethinks are happening within legacy environments (e.g., the HIPAA Privacy Rule). And these rethinks are happening at architectural levels too (e.g., open consent). Our prior research exposes ways of thinking about design components when architecting privacy solutions, and so, we use this lens to examine some new architectures in depth.  One of these will be the privacy-preserving marketplace paradigm, which seeks to design data sharing arrangements as markets that must insulate or compensate data subjects for economic harms.
