W3C Workshop on Permissions and User Consent Call for Participation
Aug 17 all-day
W3C Workshop on Permissions and User Consent Call for Participation

Sensors, devices, and rich Web APIs bring novel and complex threats to user privacy along with their heightened capabilities. Users may have trouble understanding the nature of the information they disclose and the threats presented by those disclosures. Deciding when and how to seek a user’s consent (“permission”) or when that consent can be inferred or bypassed has been challenging, with different APIs, operating systems, and browsers handling things in different ways.

This workshop brings together security and privacy experts, UI/UX researchers, browser vendors, mobile OS developers, API authors, Web publishers and users to address the privacy, security and usability challenges presented by the complex and overlapping variety of permissions and consent systems that are currently presented for hardware sensors, device capabilities and applications on the Web.

The scope includes:

  • user consent;
  • bundling of permissions;
  • lifetime/duration of permissions;
  • permission inheritance to iframes and other embedded elements;
  • relation to same origin policy;
  • UIs and controls;
  • interaction with private browsing modes;
  • implicit permission grants;
  • progressive permission grants;
  • cross-stack permissions: how OS, browser, and web app permissions interact;
  • permission transparency;
  • relation to regulatory requirements;
  • special considerations for systems that use the browser as a pass-through (e.g. EME and Web Authentication); and
  • permissions/transparency/UI as it relates to display-less devices that connect to the Internet.

We aim to share experiences and user studies, leading to common understanding of when and how to seek user consent for use of various Web platform capabilities. We expect this workshop to lead to concrete and consistent guidance for API authors and implementers and to identify areas for further standardization or research. An important take-away from this workshop should be guidance on how Permissions APIs should be designed, both now and in the future, considering the rapid evolution of the web platform.

This workshop will build on the meeting on trust and permissions for Web applications held in 2014.

How can I participate?

Attendance is free for all invited participants and is open to the public, whether or not W3C members.

Managing Multiple Compliance Priorities - GDPR, HIPAA, APEC, ISO 27001, etc. @ Online

While the GDPR has dominated the compliance agenda for the past two years, and will continue to be a major focus of attention for the foreseeable future, the reality is most companies have to address a wide range of other privacy regulations encompassing multiple jurisdictions and sectors.

This webinar will review some of the top global compliance priorities and provide insights and best practices into how to balance multiple, complex compliance priorities across your organization.

Data protection for scientific research: Which preliminary findings under the GDPR? @ Brussels
Aug 29 @ 12:00 pm – 1:45 pm
Data protection for scientific research: Which preliminary findings under the GDPR? @ Brussels | Bruxelles | Bruxelles | Belgium
On 29 August 2018, the Brussels Privacy Hub together with the Promoting Integrity as an Integral Dimension of Excellence in Research project (PRINTEGER) will be hosting a lunchtime event on “Data protection for scientific research: Which preliminary findings under the GDPR?” from12:00 – 13:45 (lunch will be provided).
As data-based research permeates almost all fields of science, personal data protection has become a crucial dimension of scientific practice. This was notably brought to the fore by the Cambridge Analytica / Facebook scandal, enabled by massive data collection practices originally emanating from the academic world. The question remains of how to effectively address the challenges in the area, and the role of data protection law, (data) research ethics, or research integrity, in this regard.
This lunch event will open up a discussion on the current state of data protection in scientific research, taking stock of current developments in light of the application of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and looking into persistent gaps.
Time: 12:00 – 13:45 (lunch included)
Venue: Lisbon Conference Room, Lower Ground Floor, Institue for European Studies, VUB, Pleinlaan 5, 1050 Brussels
Registration: The event is free to attend, but due to limited capacity, registration is required. Registration information will be available in due course on our website.

The aim of the symposium is to foster communication among diverse communities of research and practice that have used the theory of contextual integrity as a framework to reason about, design and evaluate, craft regulation for, and generate formal logics for privacy. After the success of a half-day meeting in Fall 2017, we are excited to follow up with a more comprehensive event to foster discussion across a broader spectrum of disciplines. The Symposium will feature a combination of invited and submitted works.
