Every year on January 28th, the International Data Privacy/Protection Day promotes better privacy and data protection practices. The day was first initiated by the Council of Europe in 2007 as the European Data Protection Day.
The Internet of Things can produce huge amount of data.
“By 2025, 80% of the data will be processed by IoT devices, though many times they are “black-boxes” from UI/UX and cybersecurity perspectives.”Dr. Andrei Costin, CEO & Co-Founder of Binare.io
Most of the data these days is confidential & is quite sensitive. How secure is the data that is generated by IoT devices? How is it used? What happens to that data once the process is complete?
By raising these questions today, Binare.io wants to remind both developers and consumers of IoT devices about the importance of IoT data protection and their resposibility for that.
The fines for non-compliance with data security regulations (The EU Cybersecurity Act [IoT device security], The EU General Data Protection Regulation [IoT privacy], The NIS Directive [IoT infrastructure]) can reach MILLIONS OF DOLLARS/EUROS, so it is important that IoT device manufacturers, as well as those that use IoT devices, take time to understand these regulations, and then integrate IoT security as part of their business, so that confidential information remains secure.
