Title: Privacy-preserving Analytics in the Big Data environment

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 a vision for how privacy-preserving analytics can be done in the big data environment which will require a combination of technological advances to ensure both process and output privacy as well as socio-cognitive approaches to ensure the widespread use and deployment of such work.
