OTTAWA, Ontario, January 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Replica Analytics Ltd, an Aetion company, announced a series of new courses titled Practical methods of anonymization of health dataaimed at helping healthcare institutions and other organizations overcome the data access and sharing difficulties they may face.
We found that more knowledge and skill in modern methods of depersonalization was needed. We have therefore developed this very practical course to help organizations understand and apply new solutions to their data access and sharing problems, said Dr. KhaledElEmam, course co-instructor, senior vice president and general manager of ReplicaAnalytics, who has over 20 years of hands-on experience developing and applying privacy-enhancing technologies. We focus primarily on the healthcare sector, where we have a lot of experience and where the data is probably the most sensitive. However, our course can be applied perfectly to other industries.
To innovate, organizations need to leverage data, but struggle with accessing realistic datasets while respecting confidentiality. Modern methods of depersonalizing and anonymizing datasets so they can be used more easily are part of the solution. The new course helps organizations maintain privacy in a manner compliant with contemporary regulations, such as HIPAA Expert Determination and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It covers structured data, including clinical trial datasets and real-world datasets, as well as multiple data transformation techniques, such as risk-based methods and synthetic data production. The emphasis is on developing participants’ expertise in privacy risk assessment and management methods, as well as safeguards for data processing for secondary purposes. Hands-on exercises complement instruction from world-renowned experts in this field.
The course has been designed to appeal to a broad audience, including senior privacy and data protection officers, information officers, and data analysts, among others. Participants in the inaugural course, held New York in October 2022, I would highly recommend the course to others. Concepts are explained clearly, even to attendees less familiar with the area, according to a senior pharmaceutical industry data scientist, who also noted that the real-world, practical examples of each explanation clearly show that instructors they have years of experience. Experience.
