Plenary Panel: Transatlantic issues in privacy policy: Laws (GDPR, the CLOUD Act) and implementation (optimising compliance, effectiveness and burdens)

New laws, technologies and levels of public attention have raised the stakes and uncertainties regarding privacy; this panel will bring together policy and industry experts to discuss constraints and opportunities for joint research, new challenges for joint research into ‘compliance by design’ and prospects for coordinated policy responses.

Plenary Panel: What We Must Do to Strengthen Cyber Resiliency and IoT Security.

Representatives from government, including NIST, and industry, including Microsoft, will discuss cyber security, cyber resilience, and critical infrastructure.

Traditional interactions between people and technology are often managed in an environment that consists of known devices and known software. For a world of IoT devices spreading all over in both public and private spaces, this doesn’t scale from manageability and cybersecurity perspectives. Protection, detection and recovery of IoT systems must be automated.  Yet, not all device makers including small and medium businesses know how to accomplish this throughout IoT products life cycle. We need to consider how policies, standards and technical solutions can help address IoT security and resiliency challenges. This panel is designed to have experts from both private and public sectors to share their perspectives on how to help raise public awareness, invest in policy and standard development, support cross sector collaboration to address long term IoT security and cyber resiliency both at the regional and global levels.

Plenary Panel on the Future of Autonomous Systems

David Shaw, Professor, Vice President for Research and Economic Development, Mississippi State University, US
Haydn Thompson, CEO, THHINK Group (UK, NL, Aus, JP).

Autonomous transportation systems have the potential to change every aspect of human life, and have captured the imagination of academics, industry, and the general public like few other technological developments. Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) research ranges from package delivery to remote persistent observations. Autonomous ground vehicles open up opportunities for more efficient public transportation, trucking, as well as safer transport for individuals. Both systems have the potential to revolutionize transportation of goods and services; however, major technological and policy obstacles must be addressed if their potential is to be realized. Two panels, one on each system, will focus on the research needs and collaborative opportunities
