24.08.2016 – The ever-growing availability of data raises increasing expectations toward privacy and secrecy of the stored information. The PhD thesis of Marcel Preuß "Inference-Proof Materialized Views" tackles the involved challenges. In the thesis, Marcel Preuß discusses techniques to maintain secrecy in a provable manner, while still allowing users to access data.
Marcel Preuß defended his thesis on August 24, 2016. We congratulate him to this success and we are proud to have another graduated member in our team.
