Jim Davies - University of Oxford & Genomics England Limited
Talk: Security and Privacy in the UK 100,000 Genomes Project
The 100,000 Genomes Project is linking whole genome sequences to detailed accounts of diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes.The sequences come from patients with cancer or rare, inherited disorders who have consented to the use of their data to increase our understanding of disease and to accelerate the development of new diagnostics and new therapeutics. The patients are under the care of the National Health Service (NHS) in England, and NHS staff are identifying eligible patients, providing detailed clinical and laboratory data, and receiving reports based upon the interpretation of the sequences.These reports may lead to new diagnoses and - following confirmatory tests - to new treatment decisions. The Project has two objectives: to establish a flow of high-quality data for research, and to facilitate the adoption of genomic medicine in the NHS. In this talk, I will explain some of the social and technical challenges encountered in the delivery of the project, with a particular focus upon privacy and security.
About Jim Davies
Jim Davies is Professor of Software Engineering at the University of Oxford, Director of Informatics for the Oxford NIHR Biomedical Research Centre, and Chief Technology Officer of Genomics England Limited.

Roland Eils - DKFZ and University of Heidelberg
Talk: Curse or Cure: Big Data in Health
Recent developments in DNA sequencing technology now enable human whole-genome sequencing for less than €1,000 facilitating applications in cancer research and care. These cost reductions have spurred initiatives such as the International Cancer Genome Consortium to pursue sequencing and analysis of large numbers of patient genomes. Hundreds of thousands of patient genomes will become sequenced in the next few years. Thus, an unprecedentedly rich set of “big data” will emerge in cancer and other diseases with the promise to improve patient stratification and diagnostics towards personalized medicine. I will discuss in my presentation our ongoing effort to bring next generation sequencing into clinical practice at the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) in Heidelberg and how we address ethical, legal and privacy issues in this process.

Michael Steiner - Intel Labs
Talk: ReliancePoint: A Foundation for Scalable & Secure Computation over Privacy-Sensitive Shared Data
Big data is created and accumulated each day in many organizations. Mining and analyzing the big data, especially aggregated data across organizations, has the huge benefit of both business and research values. However, loss of privacy or secret information would be detrimental an inhibit widespread applications of data analytics on joint multi-party datasets. As a result, data are locked in data silos, unavailable for research and business analysis.
In this talk, I will present the Reliance Point (RP) technology that supports hosting big data analytics in an untrusted cloud. RP addresses the problem by providing a secure and scalable "neutral environment" for computation based on hardware-based Trusted Execution Environments (TEE). RP enables analytic workflows (pipeline of analytics jobs) by dynamically forming trusted cluster of TEEs, protect data confidentiality and execution integrity while leaving data providers in full control over their data throughout workflow execution.

Paul Francis - Max Planck Institute for Software Systems & Aircloak
Talk: A Breakthrough in Anonymity X Utility for Anonymized Analytics
Working over the past few years in close conjunction with the MPI-SWS spinoff Aircloak, we have developed what we believe is a breakthrough in the anonymity X utility "product".  Our system, dubbed the "Cloak", may be installed in front of any existing SQL database (unmodified), with negligible configuration.  Untrusted analysts may submit an unlimited number of SQL queries to the database through the Cloak with, so far as we know, virtually no possibility of inferring individual user information from the answers.  The noise added by the Cloak is minimal: Gaussian with a typical standard deviation of 2 for counting queries. The SQL queries may be composed of the "aggregate subset" of SQL, which includes most standard math, string, datetime, and aggregate functions, as well as custom functions.  This talk will describe cloak operation, present a case study based on a real medical database, and give an overview of the anonymization mechanisms.
