Government agencies around the world are increasingly seeking to realise the value inherent in their growing data holdings, by making data available for research and policy analysis. While care is being taken to protect confidentiality in such data releases, there have been some high profile events in which access to some publicly-released data has been terminated due to re-identifications or risks of re-identification.

This talk will outline the evolution of traditional approaches to balancing use and analysis of data with confidentiality protection. In particular, this talk will highlight current trends, potential issues, and emerging approaches to addressing the issues.



This is a free event open to everyone. Your registration would be useful for the organisers to know how many people are likely to attend, so please complete the registration below.
