THE INDUSTRY & INVESTMENT EVENT ON APPROACHES TO PROCESSING SENSITIVE DATA

The 2022 EU event has now finished but we will be in Boston from May 18-19 - learn more here

Privacy, security, and regulatory constraints create difficulties for data-driven projects. This includes initiatives involving sensitive data being processed, accessed, monetised, bought, sold, shared, aggregated, or analysed.

To unleash the power of sensitive data for these functions, Privacy-Enhancing Technologies (PETs) are being deployed by many different sectors. Industries benefiting range from financial services to healthcare to pharmaceuticals to telecoms to government bodies and include many others. The summit addresses how to make previously unfeasible projects that involve sensitive data possible!

Also, the summit focuses on how to mitigate risks. It focuses on how to reduce the chance of data breaches or data misuse – even by third parties when data is exported, decentralised, or migrated to the cloud.

However, there is a range of PETs that can address these challenges. Choosing which PETs are right for your needs and integrating them into your organisation is not always straightforward. 

The Second Privacy-Enhancing Technology Summit Europe introduces and guides you on the different types of PETs so you can:

  • Use sensitive or restricted data to its full extent to meet strategic goals.
  • Enhance data security so that data breaches never happen, no matter where the data is being processed.
  • Facilitate compliance with varying and evolving data regulations concerning PII.

Starting working in Roche in 2014, I grew up professionally experiencing roles in finance, credit department, portfolio management, pricing and market access in Roche Pharma Italy.

I moved to Switzerland with my family in 2019, covering different roles in finance and strategic insights. I am currently working as a finance enterprise partner and as owner of some initiatives running in the customer engagement team (e.g. Data clean room).

In my childhood I dreamed of being a doctor, however as I am super scared about blood, surgery and whatever is going in that direction I changed my direction towards being part of industries that are driving innovation and investing in R&D. I strongly believe in the purpose of Roche, doing what patients need next, and I am trying to live it as a value in my everyday life.

I live in Basel with my family and during my spare time I love being with my partner and enjoying my little one growing up, spending time with friends and finding a good place to have dinner or enjoy a good glass of wine, discovering food and flower markets. Travel is another big passion that I hope will restart very soon and collect memories all around the world to decorate our place.
