Session 5: Privacy and Security

The IOT is likely to require a new stance with regards to privacy and data protection policy – regarding issues such as intellectual property rights, personal data, profiling, exchange of data between applications or objects and consent. What security challenges, particularly surrounding unauthorised access to and unintended disclosure of data may be presented by the Internet of Things? What rights pertain? ‘Privacy by Design’ is seen as a visionary principle for legislation, including the right to forget and delete data. What are the solutions that policy and regulation can provide? Is the current framework appropriate to deal with such issues? Are the principles in focus still valid with today’s legislation? How can the rights of citizens or businesses be safeguarded on globally connected networks and how can civil liberties, free speech and the internet be combined securely?

How can we encourage effective competition in the Internet of Things? Standardisation will play an important role in the uptake of IOT by lowering entry barriers to newcomers and allowing industry to compete at international level. The European commission has the objective of encouraging global standards and interoperability of the Future Internet. Are additional standards mandates necessary?

Session 7: Governance and public policy

Who is responsible for naming and identifying the IOT within Europe? What are the defining set of principles and regulation underlying the governance of IOT? How can an open, independent, transparent and accountable governance of the internet be created? The European Commission suggests that private companies should continue to take the lead in the day-to-day management of the operation of the internet, as long as they are accountable and independent. What is the role for public authorities and how can an architecture be set up with a sufficient level of decentralised management so that European public authorities can exercise their responsibilities as regards transparency, competition and accountability? What policy tools should be exercised to ensure stakeholders are accountable?
