Recently I have been working on a formal framework for evaluating the maturity of de-identification services within an organization. The framework gauges the level of an organization’s readiness and experience with respect to de-identification, in terms of people, processes, technologies and consistent measurement practices.
The De-Identification Maturity Model (DMM) is used as a measurement tool and enables the enterprise to implement an empirically-based improvement strategy.
The DMM was published under the auspices of Privacy Analytics, a leader in de-identification technology solution delivery. Alternatively, the article can be downloaded from DMM Khaled El-Emam & Wael Hassan. Or download a one-page DMM Summary.
