In fact, there’s been a lot of technological advancements over the last few years that help many of us feel more secure – doorbell cameras, dash-cams, facial recognition in CCTV… but should they? How secure are the devices themselves to compromise? How safe is the personal data we are knowingly/unknowingly sharing? And how can we future-proof the security and safety?
On Tuesday 23rd June Gemserv held a debate webinar with security, risk and privacy experts who discussed where their fields agree and disagree and the trade-offs between security and individual privacy, and vice versa.
The following topics were covered:
- De-centralised supervision – Technologies that monitor for our convenience/safety – Are security/privacy concerns justified?
- Surveillance in our society – Monitoring remote employees and monitoring of the public. What are the security/privacy implications?
- Biometric Collection – What are the societal risks and benefits?
- Covid-Contact Tracing – Privacy versus security – considering the UK model of contact tracing.
