OVERVIEW

The course will introduce methodologies at the state of the art for protecting several data types (e.g., databases, time series, graphs, longitudinal data and transactional data). Furthermore, the course will provide some insights on legal aspects related to the protection of the user's privacy. 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Students will learn the theoretical and practical bases of the anonymization of personal data. In particular, students will study state-of-the-art techniques for the anonymization of multidimensional data, graphs, time series, longitudinal and transactional data, as well as some legal bases on the protection of personal data.
