This course provides an introduction into the practical problems of data protection and privacy.
Students can develop skills of understanding and assessing privacy threats and designing
countermeasures. The course focuses on the problem of unwanted personal and sensitive data leakage from different information sources
(e.g., large datasets, web-tracking, encrypted traffic, source/binary code, machine learning models), and its detection as well as
mitigations using Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETS). Rules and requirements are also available in Hungarian on the
official site of the course.
This page is the course homepage, which contains practical information related to the course and the lectures such as
slides, administrative information, and supplementary materials. Consequently, this page always under construction.
The aim is to deliver (mainly technical) knowledge required by the General European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from Data Protection Officers (DPOs).
1 mid-term test on the last lecture. The final grade is the grade obtained for the test. Failed classroom tests can be retaken again on the supplement week.
Megbeszélés szerint, az előadóval előre egyeztetett időpontban.
Please contact the lecturer to schedule an appointment.
