TMF-Keynote: „Privacy protection of data sharing and analysis in medical research“
Data privacy is one of the biggest challenges for any organisation which processes personal data, especially in the area of medical research where data include sensitive information about patients and study participants. Sharing of data is therefore problematic, which is at odds with the principle of open data that is so important to the advancement of society and science. In this talk, we discuss the main barriers to data sharing and the existing solutions to overcome these challenges. We also present the paradigm of DataSHIELD which is a tool that allows privacy-preserving remote federated analysis of biomedical, healthcare, and social-science data.
