The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
Lighting is no longer a stand-alone building or urban service, existing in isolation from other systems and services. Lighting is being driven by increasingly technologically advanced controls. Whether this is the move towards smart cities or the Internet of Things, small domestic systems or urban big data, security and privacy is becoming a matter of concern.
As we move into an interconnected future we need to understand the implications on how we process and use increasing amounts of data, including current legal requirements given in documents such as the General Data Protection Regulation and The Cybersecurity Act.
This presentation will give an overview of these issues and how they may affect the lighting industry.
