Visual Privacy Manangement (VisiOn)

The EU-funded project »VisiOn - Visual Privacy Management in User Centric Open Environments« addresses the protection of personal user data. A Visual Privacy Management platform is developed, which has a high degree of technology maturity in the examination of data protection requirements. This platform will help users define their desired level of privacy when using public platforms and monitor compliance with these personal privacy level agreements. An appropriate visualization represents a clear comparison of the preferred data protection regulations, of relevant weaknesses/risks and trust problems together with the value of the user data.

The VisiOn platform provides administrators with the right tools to improve the transparency and traceability of their activities. The visual analysis is here supported by

  • different levels and perspectives of privacy,
  • regulatory requirements,
  • business concepts and operational concepts.

Fraunhofer ISST is responsible for the architecture of the new platform and is developing tools for the survey of data protection requirements, user surveys and evaluation of safety risks.
