Amnesia

Amnesia

the OpenAIRE data anonymization tool

  • Wednesday, 10 June 2020

Speaker: Manolis Terrovitis (Athena Research Centre)
Date: June 10th 2020
Time: 2 PM CEST


Amnesia is a flexible data anonymization tool that transforms relational and transactional databases to dataset where formal privacy guaranties hold. Amnesia transforms original data to provide k-anonymity and km-anonymity: the original data are transformed by generalizing (i.e., replacing one value with a more abstract one) or suppressing values to achieve the statistical properties required by the anonymization guaranties. Amnesia employs visualization tools and supportive mechanisms to allow non expert users to anonymize relational and object-relational data. 

Amnesia is implemented in java and javascript and it can be used as a standalone application or as a service. Moreover, it provides a ReST service API to allow the incorporation of its anonymization engine to other information systems. The tool is available through OpenAIRE and it has been used in several research projects including MEDA and MyHealthMyData.

 

Dr. Manolis Terrovitis  is a Researcher at the Information Management Systems Institute (IMSI) of Research Center Athena. His research work includes big data analytics, data privacy and anonymization methods. He received his PhD from the National Technical University of Athens (2007) and has been with the Department of Computer Science of The University of Hong Kong as a post-doctoral researcher (2007-2008). In 2009 he joined IMSI, first as a post-doctoral researcher and then as a Researcher. Google Scholar reports over 1900 citations to his work, which includes publications to some of the most prestigious venues in data management (VLDB, VLDBJ, TKDE etc). He has served as president of the Hellenic Accreditation System and a member of the Board of Directors of Information Society S.A. He head of Amnesia development in Athena RC and he has been involved in several national and EU funded R&D projects.  He has worked as a consultant at the private and public sector on the design and performance optimization of information systems and he is working as a Data Protection Officer in the National Network for Precision Medicine in Cardiology and in Oncology. Moreover, he has extensive experience on the application of privacy-by-design principles in the information ecosystems.




GDPR and Research: Where We Stand

  • Monday, 04 May 2020

 

 

The National Open Access Desks in Greece and Cyprus, continue their webinar series to inform about key Open Science issues in support of their scientific and academic communities’ needs. This month, the focus is on the General Data Protection Regulation - GDPR and its application to the research process.

OpenAIRE Webinar: “GDPR and Research: Where We Stand”

When: May 4, 2020

Time: 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. EEST


Language of Presentation: Greek

Target Audience: Librarians, Academics, Researchers, Students


We are pleased to announce that the guest speaker of this webinar is legal expert Prodromos Tsiavos, Legal Adviser of "Athena" Research & Innovation Center and OpenAIRE.

The GDPR complexity resulted in the need to better understand the regulation’s provisions and how it is applied in the research conduct, also in line with Open Science. The purpose of the webinar is to analyze important issues surrounding the application of the Regulation at all stages of the research lifecycle. More specifically, the webinar will examine the following:

  • The basic concepts of GDPR
  • The exception for scientific research
  • Special categories of personal data
  • Management of personal data within the research cycle
  • Digital services for Open Science and GDPR
 
 
 
 
OpenAIRE Legal Policy Webinars

OpenAIRE Legal Policy Webinars

Register now for two webinars in our Legal Policy Webinar series!

  • Wednesday, 29 April 2020
    Monday, 04 May 2020

OpenAIRE is happy to announce two public webinars in our Legal Policy Webinar series: one on Wednesday April 29th, and the other on Monday May 4th, at 2 PM CEST

How do you deal with sensitive personal data in biomedical research? What are potential privacy issues when using personal data for your research? What do you need to know about the GDPR and the new PSI directive?  

In these webinars, our experts Prodromos Tsiavos (Senior Legal Advisor - ARC/ Head of Digital and Innovation - Onassis Group), Thomas Margoni (CREATE Glasgow) and Jacques Flores Dourojeanni (Research Data Management Consultant Utrecht University Library) will provide a legal perspective on research data management - both theoretical and practical. Given the current health crisis, the practical examples will focus on biomedical sciences and medical data - but the webinars will be relevant for researchers and research admin from all fields (including social sciences and humanities). 

We invite researchers and research support staff to join these webinars. The webinar on April 29th will have a researcher-centered approach, while the webinar on May 4th will focus on research support and advice services. Of course , you are welcome to attend both webinars, but take into account that there might be some overlap. 

Both webinars will allow for generous Q&A time, and you have the possibility to submit your questions at registration. 

You will receive the webinar link upon registration and in the reminder email sent in the morning of the webinar. 

29th April 2 PM CEST: Webinar aimed at PhD students/ researchers : recommendations for researchers on reusing data -  legal aspects: what you need to know about GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and PSI (Public Sector Information) Directive - common misperceptions and troubleshooting -  practical examples. 

4th May 2 PM CEST: Webinar aimed at research support staff: what are relevant things to know when it comes to GDPR, new PSI directive and IPR - how to advise researchers - common misperceptions and troubleshooting - practical examples.
