Convenience & Efficiency or Surveillance? Defining PRIVACY in Highly Connected Buildings
The increasingly connected building ecosystem of lights, sensors, mobile phones, cameras, voice assistants, fitness equipment, access control and more accelerates data-gathering and enables resource conservation, operational efficiency, enhanced experiences and financial optimization. On the other hand, these hyper-connected buildings also enable the potential for occupant surveillance. Building system sensors collecting, storing, analyzing, and in some cases interpreting data in every square inch of a building greatly challenge the concept of privacy. With the rise of privacy awareness and the introduction of regulatory compliance (such as GDPR in the EU and CCPA in California), building owners and operators are expected to demonstrate commitment to lawfulness, transparency, and data protection. This webinar will bring together industry leaders to discuss this timely topic and the obvious and unintended consequences of highly connected buildings.
