From 30 September 2018 to 4 October 2018, Gurshabad Grover participated in the meetings of the working groups of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 27 'IT Security techniques' held in Gjøvik, Norway. The meetings were organized by Standards Norway with support from NTNU, Microsoft, Telenor, et.al.

Gurshabad mainly focused on the meetings of Working Group 5 responsible for standards and research in "Identity management and privacy technologies" in SC 27. I attended sessions discussing work related to current ISO/IEC standards and upcoming work in the WG, such as:

  • Establishing a PII deletion concept in organizations
  • Privacy guidelines for smart cities
  • Additional privacy-enhancing data de-identification standards
  • Extension to ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002 for privacy information management
  • User-centric framework for PII handling based on user privacy preferences

Gurshabad will be a co-rapporteur on a 12-month study period to investigate the 'Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Privacy' which was initiated by the WG in the meeting. Additionally, I was a part of the drafting committee which prepared the final resolutions and liaison statements from the meeting.

Gurshabad also attended the Norwegian Business Forum on cyber security which was held on October 4th, which featured talks by professionals and academicians working in cyber security in their different sectors. The agenda for the business forum can be found here.
