Summary of the Concept of Data Privatisation.
is the best summary of Data Privatisation that I have manged to
If we adopt Data Privatisation we can have it all both privacy and
security. In short Data Privatisation allows for all data to be
searched but controls how it is reassembled into useable information.
example relevant to our security would be that if all internet browsing
histories are searched it is only when the offending sites are found
that the specific users personal data need be accessed. How this
is done and by whom can also be controlled.
example relevant to business is that first and foremost if data
is stolen it is of no use or value without the means to reassemble
it. More importantly it restricts the information available to the
user to the specific task in hand and after the search process only
those records actually required.
The control that Data Privatisation gives us over when data becomes
information negates the need for data security in many cases and
enables the monetization of the data. In other words it is possible
for what was previously an expense to become a new source of revenue.
If with data theft no longer being an issue and aiding privacy,
research and fighting crime through a better process of elimination
along was not already enough, Data privatisation then opens the
door to a whole new market of possibilities. It is this new market
that is the true prize to be gained from Data Privatisation
