Dr. Google is ready to see you: Privacy dilemmas + co-owned personal health data

Datum: 5 nov 2019
Tid: 17.00-20.00
Plats: Coffice, Laxholmstorget 3, Norrköping

Citizens share their personal data daily, e.g., heart rate, sleep patterns, and location information, through social media and connected devices. Recently, the corporate entities of Facebook, Google and Amazon have entered into further sensitive areas of personal data, such as health and medical data. Citizens and patients do not clearly know who owns, utilizes or shares their personal data: do patients have ownership of their personal health data? Or do they co-own their personal health data with the government, municipalities, and Google and Facebook?

The talk will explore and discuss the privacy and ethical dilemmas of co-owned health data, and the benefits and risks arising from the use of medical data. Health data is one of the most sensitive types of data, and individuals assuming healthcare decisions are confidentially noted between the provider and the patient may be unrealistic. Also, hospitals have troves of information that can be valuable to hackers. Personal health and medical data have a financial value and can be sold to criminals, too. For the past three years, the healthcare sector in the U.S. has been hacked more times than the financial sector. Medical institutions are easy targets since hospital IT systems are rarely updated, and social engineering can be utilized to gain access to pseudonymization algorithms.

– Talk (1 hour) by Cory Robinson, Assistant Professor of Communication Design at Linköping University
– Talk discussion (15 minutes)
– Optional networking with free snacks and non-alcoholic beverages

Aktiviteten arrangeras av Norrköping Data Science Community.
