Lilian Edwards Considers Privacy, Security and Data Protection in Smart Cities in New CREATe Working Paper

The eleventh CREATe Working Paper of 2015 is now available to download. Privacy, Security and Data Protection in Smart Cities: a Critical EU Law Perspective by Lilian Edwards argues that smart cities combine the three greatest current threats to personal privacy, with which regulation has so far failed to deal effectively; the Internet of Things(IoT)  or “ubiquitous computing”;  “Big Data” ; and the Cloud. Edwards discusses how and if EU DP law controls possible threats to personal privacy from smart cities and suggests further research on two possible solutions: one, a mandatory holistic privacy impact assessment (PIA) exercise for smart cities: two, code solutions for flagging the need for, and consequences of, giving consent to collection of data in ambient environments.
