Privacy by Design – State of Research and Practice
Regulators, academics and industry have called for privacy-by-design as a way to address growing privacy concerns with rapidly developing technology. The public and private sector are responding — hiring privacy engineers to join the ranks of privacy-oriented professionals, often working under the guidance of a chief privacy officer. Yet, implementing concepts of privacy through design is an open challenge and research area. There is a limited, disparate, and fragmented body of research affirmatively positioned as privacy-by-design.
There is a need for a broader research vision that frames and explores the problem at the conceptual, engineering, design, operational, and organizational levels. A broader vision will allow researchers from various disciplines to interact and collaborate to develop solutions that address practical privacy needs.
Privacy by Design Workshops
This workshop was one of four aimed at identifying a shared research vision to support the practice of privacy-by-design. They convened both practitioners with direct experience of the challenges in implementing privacy-by-design from a range of fields—software developers, privacy engineers, usability and interaction designers, chief privacy officers—and researchers from an equally broad range of disciplines.
The goals for the four workshops included:
- To take stock of the methods, tools, and approaches currently used to design for privacy.
- Broaden the lens through which privacy-by-design is viewed by the research community—positioning technical design along side theoretical/conceptual, organizational, and regulatory design questions.
- Begin the process of building an interdisciplinary community of researchers to develop broader theoretical foundations, systematic approaches, as well as organizational and regulatory models for supporting the practice of privacy-by-design.

The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) will cover travel expenses for all invited participants who desire it. Participants will be asked to make their own travel arrangements to get to the workshop, including purchasing airline tickets. They will also be asked to make their own hotel reservations (as indicated on your registration). Following the symposium, CCC will circulate a reimbursement form that participants will need to complete and submit, along with copies of receipts for amounts exceeding $75.
In general, standard Federal travel policies apply: CCC will reimburse for non-refundable economy airfare on U.S. Flag carriers; per diem amounts will be enforced; and no alcohol will be covered.
For more information on Federal reimbursement guidelines, please follow the links below:
Additional questions about the reimbursement policy should be directed to Ann Drobnis, CCC Director (adrobnis [at] cra.org).
