Privacy – My next big thing

Earlier this year I started to work on a privacy team – more specific we are working on tools for anonymization. That’s why I recently started to deep dive into anonymization techniques like differential privacy. I also learned about concepts like homomorphic encryption which is extremely exciting.

At the same time – especially as a parent – privacy becomes more and more important. Seeing all these parents equipping their kids with smart watches that will track their location, terms and conditions of apps being ignored by parents because their kids “need” to use WhatsApp and sharing all these photos and videos from your kids on the internet without their consent. This is something which is really important to me and that seems to become more and more important the older the kids get and the more they use the internet.

To learn more about the different areas of privacy, I became a Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT) and I also read a lot of related books, newsletters and listened to interesting podcasts. I will share some recommendations soon.
