Privacy Implications of the Internet of Things

Share

Big data analytics promises to bring many benefits including increased security, safety, insight, and understanding about how to best support highly valued public services. Conversely, such analytics could be used to violate inappropriately individual privacy that could bring both immediate harm and cause long-term unintended consequences unless the data is secured and protected. With the emergence of the Internet of Things, the volume of data that will be subject to analysis will increase many times over. The nature of the data will also change because these devices will capture a wide-range of human activities that could be linked to individual behaviors through deep analytics. This talk will discuss how personal privacy is at risk now and how the introduction of the IoT complicates and expands related concerns.
