The panel discussion will discuss these risks and vulnerabilities. Furthermore, it explores market and policy solutions to the perceived lack of privacy and security of networks and devices. What is the role of research? What should companies do? standards? mandatory requirements?
RERUM sees security and in particular privacy as crucial for Europe and that it can be a competitive advantage. Hence, the technology should follow the principle of privacy by design, e.g. collecting data only if absolutely necessary. RERUM will exemplify this technical approach for the IoT.
