The Privacy by Design four workshop series is well underway. With two workshops completed and two to come, the community engagement is high and the interest is continuing to grow.
- Designers lack adequate heuristics to follow when designing applications that may affect users’ privacy.
- Users want modular privacy for different personal relationships.
- Designing for trust is a good framework, but requires a data-driven and research-driven process to make sure users’ expectations and needs are met.
- “Encroaching Externalities” limit the freedom to design systems.
- Users trust themselves most to protect their own privacy, and believe that self-management is an effective way of doing this.
- Every successful non-traditional interface eventually becomes a traditional interface.
Please see the full report for more information about the workshop.
The next workshop, the third in the series of four, will be held August 31 – September 1 in Pittsburgh, PA at Carnegie Mellon University and will bring together engineers to discuss privacy research and practice.
Finally, to wrap up the series, the fourth workshop will be in Washington, DC at Georgetown University to discuss legal and organizational research necessary to catalyze Privacy by Design.
