How to achieve digital governance?

Digital governance is corporate oversight of technologies that use personal or sensitive information, make autonomous decisions or exercise human-like responsibilities. The concept addresses disruptive technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), connected devices (IoT, cars, ubiquitous sensors, etc), and machine learning.

To establish digital governance programmes, companies must:

  1. first structure themselves accordingly,
  2. have a full picture of what they are doing,
  3. create an organisational culture that values fair digital practices.

Almost half of companies still can’t detect IoT device breaches

Research released today, reveals that only around half (48%) of businesses can detect if any of their IoT devices suffers a breach, despite companies having an increased focus on IoT security. The research by Gemalto found that spending on protection has grown (from 11% of IoT budget in 2017 to 13% now) and nearly all (90%) believing it is a big consideration for customers.

This tech aims to prevent incidental facial captures from IoT devices

The internet of things is virtually everywhere. Billions of IoT devices are deployed to monitor people through CCTVs, capture police footage from a body cameras and to see what products people gravitate toward when they shop. As the IoT continues to become all-encompassing, those devices stand to gather plenty of images.
