Recent developments in information technology such as the Internet of Things and the cloud computing paradigm enable public and private organisations to collect large amounts of data to employ various data analytic techniques for extracting important information that helps improve their businesses. Unfortunately, these benefits come with a high cost in terms of privacy exposures given the high sensitivity of the data that are usually processed at powerful third-party servers. Given the ever-increasing of data breaches, the serious damage they cause, and the need for compliance to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), these organisations look for secure and privacy-preserving data handling practices. During the workshop, we aimed at presenting an approach to the problem of user data protection and control, currently being developed in the scope of the PoSeID-on and PAPAYA H2020 European projects.
