Privacy Requirements Engineering

Watts Building Room 107

Abstract

A major challenge in the field of software engineering is to make users trust the software that they use in their everyday activities for professional or recreational reasons. Trusting software depends on various elements, one of which is the protection of user privacy. Protecting privacy is about complying with user’s desires when it comes to handling personal information. Users’ privacy can also be defined as the right to determine when, how and to what extend information about them is communicated to others. This presentation aims on revealing the “Privacy by design” concept by presenting the way that privacy should be dealt as a separate design criterion during system modelling prior to implementation. Also recent research efforts for designing an modelling security and privacy requirements in cloud-based systems will be presented.

Bio:

Dr. Christos Kalloniatis holds a bachelor degree from the Department of Informatics of the Technological Institute of Athens (2000). In 2001 he took his master degree on Computer Science from the University of Essex, UK. In 2008 he finished his PhD at the Department of Cultural Technology and Communication of the University of the Aegean. From 2012 until middle 2013 he served as a lecturer in the Department of Cultural Technology and Communication of the University of the Aegean. From October 2013 he is an Assistant Professor at the same department. He is an author of several refereed papers in international scientific journals and conferences. His research interests include the elicitation and modelling of privacy requirements during system design in traditional and cloud-based systems.
