| Established in November 2001, the IBM Privacy
Research Institute is an organization within IBM Research to promote and
advance research in privacy and data protection technology. The institute’s
goal is to develop the necessary technologies for enterprises that enable
the transition from today’s privacy-unaware or even privacy-intrusive ways
of doing e-business to privacy-enabling ways. As the industry’s first
technology research institute devoted to privacy, it leads IBM’s participation
within the scientific and technical communities in this important field.
The Institute has created a global research program to develop new privacy-enhancing
services and technologies. It addresses such issues as privacy in e-business,
pervasive and mobile computing, knowledge management, and intrusion detection.
