New technologies are very beneficial to the society and provide services that can drastically improve life’s quality. However, they can also pose considerable privacy threats and turn them into a nightmare. The goals of the Privatics research group is to study the new privacy threats introduced by the information society and design privacy-preserving solutions to prevent or at least mitigate them. The project follows a multidisciplinary approach. It focuses on technical and scientific problems, but also considers the economical, legal and social aspects of privacy.
