Heaven or Hell?
(Agenda preview: keep posted on updates)

Common to the co-located conferences forming Smart Security Week, the Grand Opening will be addressing the global move to put the consumer and citizen back in control of their data at multiple levels (citizen ID, customer ID, IoT devices ID, social network ID etc.).

This non-technical plenary session will explore both the latest privacy and data protection initiatives –policies, regulations, standards…– and their related societal and economic challenges.
