Replica’s Lucy Mosquera will be participating in a side-event at CPDP 2022 entitled State-of-Play of De-Identification Techniques, organized by the Future of Privacy Forum. This two-hour FPF Masterclass will focus on synthetic data, differential privacy, and homomorphic encryption developments and feature experts in each area. Attendees will explore how each method can potentially reach anonymization and the measures and controls that organizations need to implement to supplement such protections.

Conference: IAPP Canada Privacy Symposium 2022

This presentation is taking place at the IAPP Canada Symposium, organized by the International Association of Privacy Professionals. Our session is entitled Synthetic Data in the Real World: Applying and Regulating New PETs in Canada. Replica’s Khaled El Emam and health privacy lawyer Anita Fineberg will unveil results of a new study exploring how innovative privacy enhancing technologies (PETs) like synthetic data can be regulated, given Canada’s evolving legal regime. They’ll reveal findings from interviews with data protection authorities across the country, including perspectives on how these new PETs should be regulated, as well as how to reduce uncertainty, manage risk and incentivize organizations to adopt and apply them responsibly. Participants will also hear exciting case studies in the application of synthetic data generation in Canada to enable the secondary use and disclosure of health data. You can find the full conference program here.

There is a fee to register for this event.
