Project Description: Understanding, Discovering and Asserting Personal Privacy Preferences (UDAPPP)
Funded by a grant from the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC)
Individuals most vulnerable to the misuse of private information include persons with disabilities (e.g., denial of insurance, jobs, services), persons who are aging (e.g., senior’s fraud) and other individuals who face discrimination, stereotyping, marginalization or exclusion. This diverse group also has the most to gain from smart services that respond to personal data. Any privacy strategy must consider this growing group of consumers.
The project provides individual privacy preference exploration, creation and editing tools, (co-designed by diverse community participants), to gain informed individual control over personal data. A community-generated list of possible personal privacy preferences is used to form the basis of a proposed International Standards Organization (ISO) privacy preference interoperability standard.
Goals of the Project
Design an interface exemplar for discovering, exploring and choosing privacy and identity management preferences
Leverage ISO 24751* (Access for All) to discover, assert, match and evaluate personal privacy and identity management preferences
engage relevant stakeholders in developing a proposed privacy and identity management preference application profile as a New Work Item
*ISO 24751: a standard to support processes that match unique individual needs and preferences with resources that meet those needs and preferences
How it Will Work
a single, personalized interface to understand and determine a privacy agreement that suits the function, risk level and personal preferences
private sector companies would have a standardized process for communicating or translating privacy options to a diversity of consumers
implement a transparent online workspace to recruit input from stakeholders
hold facilitated group discussions, co-design sessions and test scenarios to map out potential plans and evaluate feasibility of the plans
draft a New Work Item (NWI) proposal to attach to ISO 24751
