Workshop “Advances in Statistical Disclosure Limitation”, held on the 5th Feb 2020 at UOW
Given the fact that more and more personal and business data can be easily collected through surveys, social media, medical records, high-tech monitoring and tracking systems, resulting in “big data”, the issues associated with data protection are of serious concern to society and individuals. Data privacy has become a hot topic in terms of the data systems that we are all subject to and in scientific research. With support from NIASRA, Associate Professor Yan-Xia Lin organized a one-day workshop “Advanced in Statistical Disclosure Limitations” on 5th February 2020, which attracted more than 35 participants. More than 80% of them are international researchers from the USA, UK, and Italy and national researchers (from ABS, SCIRO-DATA61, ANU, USYD, and UOW) working in the area of data privacy and data security.
