 Short description

The seminar concentrates on the processing of sensitive and personal data to show anonymization techniques and guarantees that are offered via the Amnesia tool. Amnesia is an open source software that applies k- and km- anonymity techniques in order to achieve guaranteed irreversible anonymization of personal data. The techniques of anonymization that it offers convert the personal data into statistics with the least possible loss of information, allowing their processing without the restrictions of the General Regulation on Personal Data Protection.

During the seminar, participants learn about the legal framework governing sensitive and personal data, as well as about alternatives that they can follow to achieve maximum compliance with Open Science conditions. A presentation of the tool follows and then participants have the opportunity to practice using Amnesia with their own data!

Who is it for: Researchers, Academic Staff, Research Infrastructures and Research Services, Librarians.
