Accomplishing Transparency within the General Data Protection Regulation

Dayana Spagnuelo, Ana Ferreira, Gabriele Lenzini

Research output: Contribution to ConferencePaperAcademic


Transparency is a user-centric principle proposed to empower users to hold data processors accountable for
the usage and the processing of the user’s personal data. Accomplishing transparency may come with some
resistance because it requires significant architectural changes, but it is mandatory by law under the recently
approved General Data Protection Regulation. To help the transition, we systematically review what Transparency
Enhancing Technologies can help to accomplish transparency in agreement with technical requirements
that we elicited from the Regulation’s articles. We discuss our findings in the domain of medical data
systems, where accomplishing transparency looks particularly controversial due to sensitivity of the personal
medical data.
