CISO Mag: What the Experts Have to Say on this Data Privacy Day

Enveil CEO Ellison Anne Williams talks about the importance of prioritizing data privacy, especially in the healthcare arena.

Excerpt: “Public health breakthroughs rarely happen in a silo. Researchers crave access to any and every piece of relevant data available, especially in the midst of a pandemic. Access to real-time data from disparate, global sources can help public health officials advance critical decisions when every moment counts. However, securing access to this broader data landscape is not without its pitfalls. The sensitivities associated with these assets dictate that additional access cannot come at the expense of privacy and security.

While discussions on data sharing have been taking place in the health care industry for years, COVID-19 has notably advanced the conversation, especially as it pertains to sharing sensitive information on a global scale. The pandemic has made it clear that we need to be able to share public health data quickly and efficiently without tearing down the existing regulatory frameworks put in place to protect the privacy of the individual.

This search for balance is increasingly leading towards the use of privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs), which are gaining recognition for their transformational ability to enable and preserve data privacy throughout its processing life cycle. By giving public health officials involved in the fight against COVID-19 access to data collected and generated by health care workers and researchers around the globe, PETs can enable collaborative health care efforts with the potential to benefit us all.”
