While anonymization is surely no panacea and should be used cautiously, I believe that it can be beneficial when its usage is embedded into a broader privacy engineering approach.
Therefore, I was very happy, when I was invited to participate in the AnoSiDat congress to discuss anonymization and secure data usage.

The congress took place on Tuesday and Wednesday last week. On Tuesday I delivered a keynote on privacy and security in the software-defined vehicle and had the chance to took part in a panel discussion with Engelbert Beyer (Head of Dept. „Technologieorientierte Forschung für Innovationen“, Federal Ministry of Education and Research), Prof. Esfandiar Mohammadi (Uni Lübeck), Matthias Steffen (CEO FUSE-AI) and Matthias Marx (CCC).

I was really impressed by the amount, breadth and quality of the research that was presented at the congress – great to see so much research on privacy-preserving data usage being conducted and funded. Check out the Forschungsnetzwerk Anonymisierung to learn more (German only).
