Are they facing any challenges on these projects? The reason I ask is because I have worked for many years as an end user, and I can say that I have not seen any vendor come to me for this purpose. Of course, they come to me to see if any new projects are in the pipeline. What exactly is going wrong? We should always think about our customers first, because if the customers are happy, we as vendors are happy, and we should treat projects like our children and take care of them.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Source</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://app.cronycle.com/feeds/pbb92e0b1/read/link:pbb92e0b1:2165038591?feed-type=personal-feed" target="_blank">https://app.cronycle.com/feeds/pbb92e0b1/read/link:pbb92e0b1:2165038591?feed-type=personal-feed</a></div> </div> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_20 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.theinternetofthings.eu/asim-sinha-right-strategy-and-solutions-implement-industry-40-india" data-a2a-title="Asim Sinha: The Right Strategy and Solutions to Implement Industry 4.0 in India"><a class="a2a_dd addtoany_share" href="https://www.addtoany.com/share#url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theinternetofthings.eu%2Fasim-sinha-right-strategy-and-solutions-implement-industry-40-india&amp;title=Asim%20Sinha%3A%20The%20Right%20Strategy%20and%20Solutions%20to%20Implement%20Industry%204.0%20in%20India"></a><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a><a class="a2a_button_linkedin"></a></span> Mon, 22 Nov 2021 15:03:45 +0000 editor_iot 15857 at https://www.theinternetofthings.eu Sandra Wachter: Normative challenges of identification in the Internet of Things: Privacy, profiling, discrimination, and the GDPR https://www.theinternetofthings.eu/sandra-wachter-normative-challenges-identification-internet-things-privacy-profiling-discrimination <span>Sandra Wachter: Normative challenges of identification in the Internet of Things: Privacy, profiling, discrimination, and the GDPR</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/7" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">editor_iot</span></span> <span>22/11/2021 - 16:01</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-txt field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>In the Internet of Things (IoT), identification and access control technologies provide essential infrastructure to link data between a user's devices with unique identities, and provide seamless and linked up services. At the same time, profiling methods based on linked records can reveal unexpected details about users' identity and private life, which can conflict with privacy rights and lead to economic, social, and other forms of discriminatory treatment. A balance must be struck between identification and access control required for the IoT to function and user rights to privacy and identity. Striking this balance is not an easy task because of weaknesses in cybersecurity and anonymisation techniques. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), set to come into force in May 2018, may provide essential guidance to achieve a fair balance between the interests of IoT providers and users. Through a review of academic and policy literature, this paper maps the inherit tension between privacy and identifiability in the IoT. It focuses on four challenges: (1) profiling, inference, and discrimination; (2) control and context-sensitive sharing of identity; (3) consent and uncertainty; and (4) honesty, trust, and transparency. The paper will then examine the extent to which several standards defined in the GDPR will provide meaningful protection for privacy and control over identity for users of IoT. The paper concludes that in order to minimise the privacy impact of the conflicts between data protection principles and identification in the IoT, GDPR standards urgently require further specification and implementation into the design and deployment of IoT technologies.</p> <p>Download</p> <p>Full PDF Package</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Source</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.academia.edu/37478972/Normative_challenges_of_identification_in_the_Internet_of_Things_Privacy_profiling_discrimination_and_the_GDPR?email_work_card=title" target="_blank">https://www.academia.edu/37478972/Normative_challenges_of_identification_in_the_Internet_of_Things_Privacy_profiling_discrimination_and_the_GDPR?emai…</a></div> </div> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_20 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.theinternetofthings.eu/sandra-wachter-normative-challenges-identification-internet-things-privacy-profiling-discrimination" data-a2a-title="Sandra Wachter: Normative challenges of identification in the Internet of Things: Privacy, profiling, discrimination, and the GDPR"><a class="a2a_dd addtoany_share" href="https://www.addtoany.com/share#url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theinternetofthings.eu%2Fsandra-wachter-normative-challenges-identification-internet-things-privacy-profiling-discrimination&amp;title=Sandra%20Wachter%3A%20Normative%20challenges%20of%20identification%20in%20the%20Internet%20of%20Things%3A%20Privacy%2C%20profiling%2C%20discrimination%2C%20and%20the%20GDPR"></a><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a><a class="a2a_button_linkedin"></a></span> Mon, 22 Nov 2021 15:01:47 +0000 editor_iot 15856 at https://www.theinternetofthings.eu Hanisi Anenih: New times for the Internet of Things in Europe: the European Union introduces new requirements for electronics known to be insecure https://www.theinternetofthings.eu/hanisi-anenih-new-times-internet-things-europe-european-union-introduces-new-requirements <span>Hanisi Anenih: New times for the Internet of Things in Europe: the European Union introduces new requirements for electronics known to be insecure</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/7" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">editor_iot</span></span> <span>21/11/2021 -
