The evolution of technology and our interaction with it raises substantial benefits (reduced costs, increased automation, new
services), but also keeps challenging the definition and boundaries of individual privacy. Many of these benefits and challenges have been mentioned in the context of the evolution of an internet of things, which we take to mean the growing trend of connected devices linking to and communicating with each other.
Our panel will call out the challenges and benefits from different perspectives – the individual user (or subject) of technology, the organizations utilizing technologies that can impact privacy, the broader social impact, and the data protection authorities that oversee and enforce requirements. The panel will provide some specific recommendations for the path forward.
