Privacy, security and trust

How are regulators and policy makers responding to and managing expectations for data collection versus data use?

This talk took place on Tuesday 11th March 2014 as part of the IIC Telecommunications & Media Forum in Brussels.

  • What impact has PRISM/NSA had on consumer & business behaviour?
  • How are attitudes to privacy evolving in the App era where data is the new currency, ‘fuelling’ the digital economy?
  • Who is responsible? In addition to telecom and media companies, consider hardware companies with embedded advertising + second-screen services involving multiple companies with different privacy policies. How will they be enforced?
  • IoT/M2M – can we expect “smart experiences” or a perfect storm of privacy + security + safety + IP issues?
  • How will business, policy and regulatory models evolve with ubiquitous connectivity? Learning to ‘lean-in’ to the data...
  • Update on Network Information Security Directive (NIS) debates - balancing domestic security and law enforcement concerns regarding cross-border data flows with considerations of individual privacy and data confidentiality.
