Abstract for Privacy Analytics, Dr. Khaled El Emam

Privacy Analytics Logo
Sharing and Using Personal Information for Secondary Purposes: An Enterprise Risk Management Framework Organizations are sitting on large amounts of valuable health, financial, and consumer data – whether they are healthcare providers, IT developers, insurers, governments or financial institutions. The analytical value in this data can be unlocked to improve efficiencies and to create new business opportunities if it can be used and disclosed. However there are key practical and privacy considerations which must be addressed in order to leverage this data. The purpose of this session is to describe a methodology for managing the risks of sharing and using personal information while addressing the key privacy concerns of anonymity and “stigmatizing analytics”. We will explore which information qualifies as “personal information”, including a review of how data can be re-identified, with reference to a number of recent real world examples. This will be followed by the presentation of a methodology that the attendees can use to assess and manage the re-identification risk of data sets. The methodology allows the sharing of high quality data that can credibly be claimed to be anonymous. Finally, the enterprise-level implementation of this risk management framework will be discussed in the context of a maturity model that can be used to evaluate organizational readiness and develop an implementation roadmap. In particular, governance mechanisms to address concerns about “stigmatizing analytics” or “creepy analytics”, especially that organizations are deploying new models for market manipulation, subliminal marketing, dynamic pricing practices, and where personalization is reaching new levels of sophistication.

2013.11.08 – Tech Session with QlikView: Natural Analytics – Donald Farmer (QlikTech)

Today, in our always-connected business and social lives, we often complain of information overload and the deluge of decisions we face. But, when it comes to data analysis, you’re a natural.

As human beings, we could not survive without a mind to take such a vast range of information. We know how to find the patterns and indicators that make sense. And we feel compelled, by strong social bonds, to share our sense-making with others.In our business lives, surrounded by technology, we do not leave these instincts behind. We bring our innate and learned behaviors with us into the world of customers and accounts, targets and performance, competition and sales.

If only we could provide a software experience to complement and extend users’ innate skills. Can we not make complex data easily accessible? Can exploration and discovery find patterns and outliers and projections?  Can we supplement our intuitive sense-making? At Qlik, this is what we do, and we call it Natural Analytics: technologies, experiences and services designed to work with our natural critical skills to enhance our understanding of data through exploration and discovery. In this session, we’ll thoroughly explore what Natural Analytics means for you and your business. It’s a new field for many people, and I think you’ll find it compelling, fun and useful … naturally.

Next Session: May 24, 2013 Process Orientation for Data Management Professionals – Practical Techniques and Frameworks

Organizations everywhere are looking at their business processes, some in a casual or ad hoc way, but others becoming truly process-oriented. This is great news for data management professionals with skills in the business process arena. That’s because our goal may be improved data and information, but experience has shown that focusing on business processes is a great way to get the attention and support of the enterprise. After all, business processes are at the heart of what an enterprise does and how it delivers value.

The fly in the ointment is that so many organisations and analysts struggle when working with business processes. From the outset, they fail to properly identify true, end-to-end business processes, and it’s all downhill from there – ignoring the inherent resistance to “all things process,” failing to depict processes and their issues in a compelling way, and not effectively using them to establish context and elicit specific requirements.

This session introduces techniques for working on process-oriented projects, with practical frameworks and tips to get you off to a successful start. It touches on all phases of a project, including introducing business process concepts, discovering processes, scoping and assessing the target process, and modeling processes,. Throughout, we’ll illustrate the interaction between process and data perspectives.

Highlights include:

  • What people think business processes are, what they really are, and why it matters
  • Good news – how a data-oriented approach is invaluable in process discovery
  • Bad news – why some of our beloved approaches and frameworks get in the way
  • How to make processes visible and the need for improvement compelling yet blame-free
  • Workflow mapping, and the essential difference between process and data modeling

Alec Sharp, a senior consultant with Clariteq Systems Consulting, has deep expertise in a rare combination of fields – facilitation, strategy development, business process analysis and redesign, application requirements specification, and, of course, data modeling. His 30 years of hands-on consulting experience, practical approaches, and global reputation in model-driven methods have made him a sought-after resource from Ireland to India, and Washington to Wellington.

He is also a popular conference speaker on the data, process, and business analysis circuits, mixing content and insight with irreverence and humor. Among his many “top-rated of the conference” presentations are “The Lost Art of Conceptual Modeling,” “The Human Side of Data Modeling,” “Getting Traction for ‘Process’ – What the Experts Forget,” “Mind the Gap! – Integrating Process, Data, and Requirements Modeling,” and “Adventures in Reverse-Engineering – What You’ve Got and Why You Don’t Like It.”

At Enterprise Data World 2010, Alec was awarded DAMA’s 2010 Professional Achievement Award. At the recent Building Business Capability 2012 conference, Alec was the highest-rated speaker.

Alec literally wrote the book on business process modeling – he is the principal author of “Workflow Modeling: Tools for Process Improvement and Application Development.” Popular with process improvement professionals, business analysts, and consultants, it is consistently a top-selling title on business process modeling with a “5 star” rating on Amazon.com, and is widely used as an MBA textbook. The completely rewritten second edition was published in 2009.

Alec’s popular workshops, including Working With Business Processes, Data Modeling (introductory and advanced,) Requirements Modeling (with Use Cases and Business Services,) and Integrated Business Analysis and Requirements Definition (“iBARD”), are conducted at many of the world’s best-known organizations. His classes are practical, energetic, and fun, with participants often rating them “the best course I’ve ever taken.”

March 8, 2013 – Don’t miss these two… Predictive Analytics and Database Trends

Bringing Sexy Back – Why the database marketplace is changing quickly After several decades of standardization and commoditization, the database marketplace is now rapidly transforming due to disruptive forces in both technology and business. New entrants have emerged recently that are challenging conventional wisdom on the role of a database in an organization. Companies everywhere are re-allocating resource and money toward the database layer as a means of harnessing this change for competitive advantage. This presentation will focus on key trends that that are driving this change in the landscape and what it means for business.

Michael Bain:Michael Bain Global Database Director, Go-to-market Innovation, SAP. Michael has been involved in the Database marketplace for more than 20 years.

Making the most of your data through predictive analytics & data mining SAS Logo The ability to make effective, fact-based decisions is not based on data quantity. Most organizations are awash in data – too much of it, in many cases. Rather, success is based on an organization’s ability to discover more meaningful and predictive insights from the data it already has. In this presentation Tara Holland from SAS and Ella Young from Vancouver Coastal Health Authority will describe and show examples of how Predictive Analytics and Data Mining can reveal new insights out of existing data to improve business performance. The presentation will focus on how organizations can:

  • Discover new and relevant insights with speed and flexibility
  • Analyze data to find useful results with confidence
  • Act quickly to make better decisions and drive better actions.
