User-centric Privacy & Security in the Ubiquitous World

Speaker:  Silvia Giordano – MANNO ,TI, Switzerland
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy


Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing is creating a new service-rich world. However, it is also opening new paths for data leakage, data breach, and data phishing. We need to take a fresh look at the data privacy space by considering a user-centric approach. It has to be user-centric by considering user behaviours and the user context in order to teach them to improve security and privacy, and realize so privacy preserving data collection and processing. It has also to increase users awareness, data transparency and control. Users need to be informed about the data that are being collected in a user-friendly manner, and must have the option to oppose to them.

This further generate a problem of Quality-of-Service, as in many scenarios there is a trade-off between guaranteeing privacy and performance. Also, privacy is not fully in users’ hands, as information on friends, relatives and mates can be successfully exploited to extract relevant user information.

We are going to discuss how this impact on us and on our society, and analyse some scenarios and possible solutions.
