  • Wolfgang Steinbauer, VP, Head of the NXP Innovation Center Crypto and Security, NXP Semiconductors
  • Alicia Asin, CEO of Libelium, developers of IoT devices for monitoring and detecting potential Covid-19 infections

We aim to answer critical questions on privacy and security, especially:

  • How secure are the devices checking people’s health, especially at the workplace?
  • Are companies allowed to collect any health-related information and process it?
  • How long contact tracing data can be retained, and where is stored?
  • Can governments restrict access to services, such as public transit, if people refuse to use the apps?

Please join us to try to answer these and other questions.

Date: Wednesday, June 3, 2020, Time: 10:00 am EDT | 7:00 am PDT | 4:00 pm CEST
