Talk 3

Privacy Bounties - a good idea?

Bug bounties are the 'du jour' solution to the historical problems with vulnerability disclosures and properly incentivizing security researchers while limiting their exposure to liability and criminal sanction. Are bug bounty programs like BugCrowd and HackerOne suitable to other contexts such as provable privacy? This lightning talk will address the need for provable privacy validation beyond internal testing, and mere assertions that a form of anonymization or pseudonymization is being used to protect privacy in the world of extreme data processing. Transparency and programs that incentivize white-hat testing for security could be adapted to help build confidence in empirical approaches to differential privacy and other forms of anonymization and pseudonymization of personal information.
