We are living in an increasingly digital world. Never has this been more apparent than our current reality of social distancing, as we are forced to commit to conducting more and more of our daily lives online, from business meetings, to shopping, to interacting with our families. In this new normal, questions and concerns regarding maintaining the security and privacy of our data have moved even further into the spotlight.
For this episode I am joined by Rachel Cummings, professor in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech to discuss the relationship between data security and data privacy, how O.R. and analytics help organizations from banks to hospitals to our own government maintain the security and privacy of our data. We’ll also talk about the importance of sharing data, focusing on the current coronavirus pandemic and the 2020 U.S. Census.
