Privacy Research

   PrivacyPortfolio conducts one experiment every month to determine our effectiveness.
Our first experiment began on January 7, 2019 and the results were presented during our first webinar on Data Privacy Day 2019: 
"Submitting Privacy Requests", January 28th.

See the results here: Our Repo on Github

Privacy Experiment #2

How can written privacy policies be transformed into automated rulesets?


Sample: 

10 privacy policies


1. Define three rules we expect to find in every privacy statement.

2. Code a method to identify each rule.

3. Add each rule to a policy schema.

4. Code a method to test each rule.

5. Output the results of each test.


Premise:
Privacy policies are supposed to have specific required elements to support Privacy-by-design.

These elements support Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPS), such as Notice, Choice, Access, Security, and Enforcement.

It is reasonable to assume these elements can be tested and validated.

Validation means that testing reveals the practices and processes which support these claims.

Testing is the phase which validates if transparency into an organization's practices exists or not.

   
Results of these research experiments are published in our public code repository,
along with the code and methodology for independent validation.

Organizations targeted in our research are not identified.

If you have any concerns about our research, we encourage you to read our privacy policy and submit a questions, concern, or complaint.
