NIST Releases Technical Note on Tackling Privacy Challenges
Tuesday, May 25, 2021 | Comments

The National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) released a technical note that examines lessons learned from the organization’s 2018 differential privacy challenges.

De-identification is a set of approaches that strips or obscures personal identifiable information (PII) from a dataset. The ability for researches to use public-safety datasets without compromising PII is critical to studying trends quicker, which could help first responders and dispatch centers taking 9-1-1 calls.

The new technical report recounts lessons learned and outcomes from a series of prize challenges hosted by the Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) division of NIST that focused on differentially private techniques to de-identification and serves to spur future research on the subject.
