** Keynote Talks **
  Dr. Khaled El Emam (University of Ottawa, Canada)
  Title: Practical Risk-based Approaches for Anonymizing Health Data: A Perspective from the Trenches

  Anonymization is fundamental for our ability to use and disclose health information for secondary purposes without the need to obtain express individual consent, such as for research, public health, drug development, and monitoring adverse drug events. Furthermore, the notion of personal information is integral to privacy statutes in many jurisdictions. Anonymization methods must provide robust assurances about privacy as well ensure that the perturbed data is still useful for secondary analysis.
  Risk-based anonymization methods have been in use for more than a decade to facilitate the sharing of health information. These methods have a number of important characteristics: they are quantitative in that they allow the expression of risk values, and they take into account the context of the data use or disclosure. The implication is that security, privacy, and contractual controls need to be applied to ensure that the risk of re-identification is acceptably low.
In this presentation I will provide an overview of how risk-based anonymization methods have been applied in practice for non-public data sharing, and the specific constraints that would need to be imposed on public data sharing (e.g., open data or open government initiatives) under this model.

  Dr. Khaled El Emam is a Professor at the University of Ottawa, Faculty
of Medicine, and a Senior Investigator at the Children's Hospital of
Eastern Ontario Research Institute. From 2005 to 2015 he held the Canada
Research Chair in Electronic Health Information at the University of
Ottawa. His main area of research is developing techniques for health
data anonymization and secure disease surveillance for public health
purposes. He is also the founder and president of Privacy Analytics
Inc., which develops solutions for the de-identification of health
information. In 2016 Privacy Analytics was acquired by IMS Health Inc
(now QuintilesIMS).
Previously Khaled was a Senior Research Officer at the National Research
Council of Canada, and prior to that he was head of the Quantitative
Methods Group at the Fraunhofer Institute in Kaiserslautern, Germany. In
2003 and 2004, he was ranked as the top systems and software engineering
scholar worldwide by the Journal of Systems and Software based on his
research on measurement and quality evaluation and improvement, and
ranked second in 2002 and 2005. He holds a Ph.D. from the Department of
Electrical and Electronics, King's College, at the University of London

  Dr. Kazue Sako (NEC, Japan)
  Title: TBA

  Dr. Kazue Sako received her B.S. degree and PhD from Kyoto University. Her
research interest is in cryptographic protocols that enhance privacy
and fairness, e.g. electronic voting protcols, group signature
schemes, digital lottery systems and blockchain architecture. In order
to promote the use of anonymous authentication, she edited ISO/IEC
29191 and ISO/IEC 20008-2. She served as Program co-Chair/ Chair for
ASIACRYPT 2012, 2013 and RSA conference 2016 Cryptographer's
Track. She is a strong advocate of Personal Data EcoSystem, which
empowers individuals with their own data. She is Senior Principal
Engineer at NEC. She is also a member of the Science Council of Japan.

** Special Session **

  We will have the following special talks about privacy enhancing technology competitions.

Poster presenters MUST BRING their own poster to the workshop venue on the poster presentation date. IWSEC2017 DOES NOT provide any printing support for the poster. Poster boards and pushpins will be provided by the workshop.
