Privacy Breach Detector

Create a mechanism to help governments prevent privacy breaches when publishing new (governmental) open data in existing data fields, in compliance with GDPR. BUIDL an open-source “Privacy Breach Detector”.

 

THE CHALLENGE

Governments have a lot of data, which they’d like to share with everyone, as basically everyone has paid taxes to collect this data. However, government organisations are afraid of revealing personal information by enabling the combining of large amounts of data.

To test this, a ‘privacy breach detector’ could be developed that would sound an alarm (‘Privacy breach!’) if the dataset the organisation wishes to unlock should not be made available, or only in an adapted form.

TOOLBOX

We will expand the toolbox based on your questions and requests.

ELIGIBLE TEAMS

Pre-Startup
Startup
Mature SME
Corporate
Ideas for a privacy breach detector could be developed by various types of teams. For a pre-startup or startup, this could be their startup product or service, for a mature SME, an addition to their portfolio and for corporations, a way to develop skills and contribute to software for a good cause.

 

PROTOCOL OR
APPLICATION SOLUTION?

The most likely privacy breach detector solution is an app. However, it could also be an online service or a code library to be used in programming environments.

OPEN SOURCE OR PROPRIETARY

Open Source:
The privacy breach detector is an instrument to build trust; trust in the fact that data can be published safely. To gain trust, instruments must allow for review of the source code; open source is the way to go. Furthermore, future community-driven development of and additions to the privacy breach detector must be possible.

Motivation

One of the objections to publishing open data is the risk of releasing datasets which accidentally expose privacy-related information. Checking this data with the privacy breach detector can prove that it is safe to release the specific open data with regards to privacy.

Ambition and goals

Building trust in open data publishing.

Track record in innovation and acceleration with teams/companies

Extensive experience in open data publishing is available.

CONSORTIUM

Current consortium. The consortium is still being formed, and will consist of relevant (public) parties capable of accelerating your solution.

 

Welcoming: To be included.

 

INCUBATION

What does the partner have to offer. The Ministry will accelerate the best team(s) according to their needs.
