In a recent legislative proposal, President Obama advanced measures to encourage broad sharing of cybersecurity threat information within industry and with government. The challenge for such proposals in the past has been sharing information without infringing on consumer and corporate privacy. In this panel session, Mr. Freedman will discuss a peer-to-peer framework for data sharing using Privacy by Design principles. This approach allows organizations to share data without a central repository, use encryption to mask excessive information, and implement “relevancy based sharing” to avoid cyber security liabilities. Attendees will:

--Learn about the president’s cybersecurity initiative and other policy documents from the EU and NIST

--Hear about privacy enhancing tools on data sharing platforms

--Explore technical and policy responses to privacy issues associated with cybersecurity information sharing and collaboration between organizations
