In a new paper titled Privacy by Design and the Emerging Personal Data Ecosystem, renowned Ontario Information and Privacy Commissioner Ann Cavoukian together with co-authors from the United States and the United Kingdom describe the systems and initiatives driving the PDE and how they seek to address the challenge of protecting and promoting privacy, while at the same time, encouraging the socio-economic opportunities and benefits of personal information as a new asset class.

The paper features case studies of the personal data vault (PDV) and platform of Washington D.C.- based Personal Inc., and the personal data network belonging to San Francisco-based Respect Network, plus invaluable market data on the emerging PDE provided by Ctrl-Shift of London. The paper was released in conjunction with SWIFT’s Digital Asset Grid announcement on October 31 2012 at the Sibos Conference in Osaka Japan, as well as in Toronto, London, Washington and San Francisco.
