Studenteropgave: Kandidatprojekt


In recent years, there has been a strong focus on digital privacy both from governments and private entities. While legislations
such as GDPR and industry guidelines like NIST and ISO 29100 are efforts to mitigate some of the issues regarding digital
privacy, our society’s approach to data privacy is still questionable. Even when data sources follow both legal and industry
standards and reveal limited personally identifiable information as contextually necessary, it is still possible to combine records
from multiple data sources to build a profile containing personally identifiable information. In this project, we investigate the
potential issue of linkability by reviewing legal and industry standards, analyzing online Danish governmental public record
data sources and their approaches to privacy, and attempting to create a theoretical method to connect public records from
multiple data sources to create a collection of personally identifiable information.
