How far will your health data go?
School of Computing - Security Group Seminar
Speaker: Prof. Eerke Boiten, De Montfort University


Sharing is nice, so data sharing must be good. Lessons from, DeepMind/NHS, and more.


After his PhD in the Netherlands, Eerke Boiten worked at the University of Kent as a computer science researcher and academic from 1995 to 2017. His work was initially in formal methods, with books on Refinement in Z (2001,2014) and Refinement (2018) published by Springer. He branched out into computer security 10 years ago. He set up and led the University's interdisciplinary Research Centre in Cyber Security. Looking beyond just his own discipline, Eerke developed an interest in the policy sides of data, starting from a perspective of technical realism. He engages in public debate in this area across a wide variety of media, including on privacy in general, and was a reviewer for the Nuffield Bioethics report on Biological and Health Data in 2015. In April 2017, he moved to De Montfort University, Leicester, UK, to take up the role of Professor of Cyber Security and Director of the Cyber Technology Institute. His current research projects are in ransomware, cybercrime investigation, proofs of cryptography, privacy impact assessment, anonymization, refinement and cyber intelligence sharing.
