How can online private information be protected? Private information leaks cost businesses millions and can expose individuals to grave risks. Data security protection measures and enforced regulations are needed.

Machine Learning models have unique vulnerabilities that are not covered as part of UVA machine learning or cybersecurity classes at the University of Virginia. A new special topics course is therefore proposed. In it, students would study the security faults in machine learning models and learn to detect and prevent such threats.

In 2018, the European Union enacted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a privacy standard for all member states, and established Data Protection Agencies (DPAs) for each member state. Privacy advocacy groups and industry groups contend that too many companies do not comply with the GDPR. They seek stricter enforcement by pressuring DPAs to punish violators and by helping companies comply with the GDPR.
