2018 Forum programme

Forum Session
Strengthening collaboration in data protection
Thursday, September 13, 2018, 9:15 AM - 10:30 AM, Room 11E

As regulation and data protection initiatives prove increasingly unable to keep pace with the exponential growth of data analytics and the digital economy, the potential for abuse of personal and business data continues to rise. Building trust at consumer, corporate and national levels, implementing fit-for-purpose data security measures, and wide-scale capacity building are essential to realizing the full benefits of the data value chain. What are the main security risks associated with new AI or IoT solutions, smart cities or digital financial services? How important is trust to the success of smart development? How are the various stakeholders in different geographies cooperating on security threats and breaches? What is the role of organizations such as ITU in strengthening global collaboration, sharing data best practices and building capacity to protect user data?
