RIT professor to study data privacy on home devices
Eric Williams, a professor in Rochester Institute of Technology’s Golisano Institute for Sustainability, will lead a $496,027 National Science Foundation project for a study designed to better understand and manage data privacy on home devices.
The three-year study, “Managing Privacy and Environment for Used and End-of-Life Electronic Devices,” will look at how the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the transition toward increased telework and mobile working, and resulting implications on data security and e-waste.
The study will involve research and outreach activities to better understand and manage the privacy of data on home devices. Consumers will be surveyed on privacy and end-of-use behaviors. Personally identifiable information stored on various devices will be assessed and analyzed for privacy risk. The usability of data wiping protocols will be evaluated to clarify how easy and effective it is to remove personal data from different devices.
