Re-thinking how to represent data privacy, we helped Cisco go from
text-based privacy data sheets to fully-visual maps to showcase data
flow and usage in their products. By utilizing a visual format, we
open another avenue for creating transparent data practices that
will be more accessible and understandable to a wider variety of
audiences, without the need for technical jargon. To facilitate
scaling the process, we also created a custom Data Map Tool software
that can ingest data from existing privacy data sheets to create an
initial Data Map.
Intel + UC Berkeley Smartphone Study
Determining people's privacy preferences, and habits, one
smartphone at a time. We recruited Android smartphone users to go
about their daily routine with a test phone running a modified
Android OS to track and collect data on not only the users' daily
actions, but the behaviors of the apps themselves. The modified OS
contained a custom permission settings feature; users were allowed
to change this setting and interact with it throughout the testing
period. By analyzing how users interacted with these permission
settings, we gained valuable insight on not only how to create a
better permissions system, but users’ attitudes and thoughts on app
permission and privacy.
Analyze deidentified datasets by simulating “motivated intruder
attacks” to test the effectiveness of the anonymization techniques.
We work hand-in-hand with the users of the data so as to best tailor
the deidentification practices to reduce the risk of
re-identification, while maintaining as much of the data use as
