This week's event will feature Steven E. Brenner, Professor of Plant and Microbial Biology, Molecular & Cell Biology, and Bioengineering, who will present and lead a discussion title 'Privacy Time Bombs in Omics Data' on how biological discovery and consumer genetics activate latent privacy risk in omics data.

The presentation will cover how current large scale biological datasets that are now routinely shared may have hidden privacy risks that will only become relevant in the future.

About the Working Group

The goal of this working group is to understand issues around sensitive/restricted use research data from a variety of views - especially from the perspective of Berkeley researchers who need and use such data and the staff and units who support that. We will also seek to develop concrete solutions and products - whether it is environments, model security plans or data use agreements, or compendia of local data or resources. A third goal of this group is to provide input to IT and other organizations working on developing a set of suggested solutions to provide to campus leadership. We expect to cover:

  • potential sources for these research data 
  • the legal environment and constraints under which data can be shared 
  • models for hosting RUD 
  • language used in data protection plans for various providers 
  • places on campus which can house restricted use data 
  • OPHS/IRB concerns and resources 
  • ... and topics you might want to see covered.
