Collaborating and exchanging data can optimize productivity and reveal unexplored prospects. However, information is often isolated and siloed with limited access to protect it from compromise and to comply with differing regulatory requirements. Experts will share how they have increased both internal and external data collaboration, the lessons they’ve learned, and the partnership opportunities being enabled by PETs.

What are the real-world applications that industry players are using PET for? What are the practical issues? Hear snap insights from IMDA’s PET Sandbox and the adopters’ perspective in this special segment put together by IMDA. This segment will feature key industry players sharing their use cases in the retail, finance and advertising domain, followed by a special panel together with IMDA, as they dive into the unique and common challenges they face.

  

  • Hear IMDA share what they have learnt in the year since they’ve launched their PET Sandbox and what’s next for this regulatory sandbox.
  • How can PETs solve the challenges of sharing financial crime insights to disrupt criminal network activity while addressing tipping-off concerns?  Derek will talk about the potential of using PETs for trans-boundary intelligence sharing.
  • Can PET help companies personalise services for consumers while protecting user privacy? Hear Dr Li Ang share their application of PET in the retail domain.
  • As the digital advertising industry moves into a cookie-less future, browser vendors and ad-tech companies are trying to work together through web standards bodies to develop new, PET-based solutions to attribution measurement that do not entail tracking. Meta and Mozilla have co-proposed a new API called "Interoperable Private Attribution" or IPA. Ben Savage will present on the learnings from their test pilot of IPA through the IMDA PET Sandbox, including the regulatory clarifications on the interplay between such privacy-preserving APIs and consent.

Digital transformation is essential for government agencies to stay competitive and deliver better services to citizens. But with the increasing amount of data being collected, proper attention to data privacy concerns is crucial to maintain the trust of stakeholders. This talk will explore the challenges and opportunities for promulgating PETs in the public sector, and the role of PETs can fit into organisations’ data engineering strategy. In particular, it will touch on some of the lessons learned in developing a Central Privacy Toolkit, as part of a wider ecosystem of data engineering tools that allow public sector officers to collaborate, share and exploit data while striking the right balance between data-driven innovation and privacy protection.

Billions of people around the world rely on access to information through websites and mobile applications. We are building for a privacy-first future, one where people have transparency in their ability to keep their online information private, and at the same time ensuring we maintain the integrity of a free and open internet. This requires a very close collaboration between Governments, Industries and Digital Ecosystems.

The IMDA x Google: PETs x Privacy Sandbox initiative; we are helping companies migrate to this privacy-first world, by providing the education and tooling necessary to become privacy-ready. In this session we will provide the audience with an overview of this strategic programme, discuss key updates, and share recommended actions to help prepare for a privacy-first future.

To successfully roll out a new system in an organisation is it essential to ensure its effectiveness and obtain stakeholder buy-in. To get the internal buy-in and ensure effective integration of PETs with existing infrastructure it is essential that all affected stakeholders are involved at the earliest in the solution design discussions.

Fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) allows for computing on encrypted data, and has always carried the promise of revolutionary change in the way that data is managed and shared. However, realising this promise at scale requires an entirely new computing architecture dedicated to the intensive operations that underpin FHE. Optalysys specialise in FHE accelerator hardware and infrastructure, and we are please to announce that we now have a cloud-native accelerator capability.

In this keynote speech, we will describe the first FHE hardware acceleration capabilities that we will be deploying on the public cloud, the approach that we will be taking over the next 24 months to make our rapidly evolving hardware accessible to a wide range of end-users, and our long-term plan to place high performance FHE accelerators at the heart of data workflows in the cloud.

Either your organisation is in the insights business or aiming to become more data driven, access and sharing of diverse and good quality data is essential. This comes with a range of challenges (Risks) especially if the underlying data entails confidential or personal information but also presents opportunities. By leveraging PETs, not only organisations can mitigate risks associated with privacy compliance and IP/confidentiality but also position themselves as trusted data collaboration partners while increasing sustainability and resilience of their data driven business. PETs vendors must also consider sustainability factors and be open to co-create creative collaboration models with their customers to revolve issues around pricing, dependability and interoperability.
