Automation in Privacy Engineering - Belgium  

Company managed [?] Still accepting applications

Posted on : 18 May 2017

Project Description

Responsibilities
As privacy engineering methods are maturing, the need to optimize and automate these solutions is growing. Nevertheless, an automation toolset for privacy engineering is far from straight-forward as there are still many open issues. We currently focus on a number of related research challenges, including: 
  • Automated decision support for privacy threat analysis
  • Extraction of data flow diagrams based on existing architectural diagrams
  • Identification of suitable architectural views for privacy analysis and engineering
  • Guidance for selection of suitable privacy mitigation solutions (PETs)
  • Automated generation of privacy impact assessment documentation
  • Interactive guidance through the privacy knowledge base for privacy threat analysis and mitigation
  • These research topics are applied and require, in addition to the core research, outstanding technical work (to implement the tool suite).
  •  In addition, we closely collaborate with industrial partners and apply our findings in case studies in innovative application domains, including e-health, e-finance, e-media and e-government. This is also part of this versatile job.
