On 6th October, ARCADIAN-IoT hosted a compelling instalment of its ongoing webinar series, this time focusing on “Privacy and Data Protection in IoT Systems.” As the number of connected devices continues to grow, so does the need for stringent data protection measures, and this webinar shed light on just that.
The ARCADIAN-IoT Webinar Series forms a cornerstone in the dialogue surrounding IoT security. Tailored to address the multifaceted challenges IoT security presents, this community-driven event series gathers industry front-runners to delve into emerging trends, cutting-edge technologies, and best practices in IoT device protection.
The ARCADIAN-IoT project is on a mission to conceive a holistic framework fostering trust, security, and privacy management for IoT systems. In a landscape where everyone, from individual users to vast IoT infrastructures, is at risk, the importance of such a conversation is paramount.
Privacy at the forefront
The webinar began with an overview of the ARCADIAN-IoT framework, setting the stage for the ensuing discussions. Adriana Peduto and Giovanni Maria Riccio from E-Lex deep-dived into the harmonisation of ARCADIAN-IoT technologies with data protection, emphasizing AI systems, the delineation of responsibilities, and the crucial topic of facial recognition.
Following that, Giacomo Inches of Martel Innovate presented the ways ARCADIAN-IoT tools empower users to take charge of their data protection.
The session culminated with Nejc Bat from XLAB delineating the intricacies of Hardened Encryption within ARCADIAN-IoT, particularly focusing on safeguarding dormant data.
As IoT devices permeate every facet of our lives, events like these are not just educational but pivotal. Stakeholders and enthusiasts alike are encouraged to register and partake in this ongoing series, ensuring that as our world becomes increasingly interconnected, it remains equally safeguarded.
