Managing Data in the Internet of Things

24 January 2017 - 4:30pm to 6:00pm

Chatham House, London


Professor Carsten Maple, Professor of Cyber Systems Engineering and Director for Cyber Security Research, WMG Cyber Security Centre, University of Warwick
Chair: Emily Taylor, Associate Fellow, International Security, Chatham House



The Internet of Things offers a fantastic opportunity to advance science, industry and society. The future will see integrated services supplied through multiple providers. These services will be adaptable and underpinned by new business models. As yet, however, little consideration has been given to who manages, and indeed owns, the data. Future collaboration between organizations will see data shared to optimise services and tighten the supply chain, thus driving efficiency. However, such information sharing, especially directly accessed from sensors in a different organization, poses a number of challenges. We need to not only protect organizations, but also respect those whose data is collected.

This session will explore the issues of data and system access across organizational boundaries and the responsible custodianship of data.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.

This roundtable is part of a seminar series on the Internet of Things sponsored by American International Group.
