De-identication of data is increasingly one of the most important concepts in privacy and security law. For example, HIPAA excludes properly de-identified information from the reach of its threshold category of “protected health information.” What does it mean, however, to de-identify data? What kinds of technical steps are required, and what kind of experts do lawyers need to involve in the process? What is the core of critical knowledge about de-identification that all privacy lawyers should have? This workshop features two experts in de-identification methods, who will provide a primer for lawyers and people without a technical background.
