Privacy Engineering Book, 1 Year since publication

On the 18th of July, 2014 I published my first book: Privacy Engineering, a dataflow and ontological approach.

So, happy birthday to my book and the story of its writing can be found on this blog (here!). :-)

Since then I've been privileged to have invited talks at the IAPP's DP Intensive, IWPE 2015, various university lectures, an EIT SIG on Privacy, a semi-regular column on the IAPP's Privacy Tech blog and many other unexpected places - all to talk about the ideas in this book. Next up is a tutorial session at TrustCom 2015 in Helsinki in August with the authors of my "rival" book, The Privacy Engineer's Manifesto: Michelle Dennedy and Jonathan Fox of McAfee/Intel.

And it does feel good to call oneself "an author" one an air of gravitas...maybe I should start drinking absinthe and discuss philosophy while smoking a pipe?

So what's next? Well, a second book concentrating more on the modelling analysis should appear later this year - tentatively in December. Here's a preview of the cover:

Privacy Engineering is available on Amazon UKAmazon US (as well as where ever else Amazon has sites), Barnes and Noble, CDON (Finland) and CreateSpace itself
