Data privacy issues are especially hazardous for startups, as many use data to the same extent, or more, as large corporations. Professor Mohan Kankanhalli, Dean of NUS Computing and director of the NUS Centre for Research in Privacy Technologies (N-CRiPT), shared reasons why data privacy may not be high on startups’ list of priorities. NUS Computing Associate Professor Terence Sim, who is a principal investigator at N-CRiPT, added that ensuring good security of data is the first line of defence to preserving privacy.

Assistant Professor Reza Shokri, who does research on data privacy at N-CRiPT, shared insights from a paper that he worked on with NUS Faculty of Law Associate Professor Daniel Seng, which looked at whether different types of machine learning algorithms complied with privacy regulations.
