*NISO Symposium: Privacy Implications of Research Data*

In conjunction with the International Data Week event being held in Denver,
CO, this event will be offered both as an on-site event (RSVP here) as well
as a virtual (streaming) event. There is no cost to the attendee,
regardless of the selected option!

NISO and The Research Data Alliance (RDA) have formed a joint working group
with the intent of addressing a major challenge regarding the advancement
of scientific data sharing: privacy and security. In particular, the
sharing of human-subject data is hampered by lack of any framework that
adequately factors in and addresses those concerns. The RDA-NISO Joint
Working Group is taking on the challenge of creating a global consensus
framework that can address the various privacy and security concerns.

With that objective in mind, attendees will hear from experts on the

·      The feasibility of balancing research requirements with the need for
privacy protections

·      The limits of anonymization in the context of personally
identifiable information

·      The demands of security, privacy, and trust

·      Privacy, policy, and data governance in university research practice

·      Privacy and legal frameworks in the European Union

And more…

Confirmed speakers include *John Wilbank*s, Sage Bionetworks; *Micah Altman*,
Massachusetts Institute of Technology; *Christine Borgman*, University of
California–Los Angeles;*Christoph Bruch*, Helmholtz Association of German
Research Centres; *Paul Burton*, Professor of Infrastructural Epidemiology,
