January 2012 The PII Problem
The PII Problem: Privacy and a New Concept of Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is one of the most central concepts in information privacy regulation, but there is no uniform definition of it. Moreover, the US and European Union approach this topic in different ways. Finally, computer science has shown that PII and non-PII are not immutable categories. You are invited to hear Professors Paul Schwartz and Daniel Solove present their new paper the PII Problem: Privacy and a New Concept of Personally Identifiable Information, which discusses personally identifiable information and proposes a concept entitled "PII 2.0." A panel discussion will follow.
