The Problems with IoT (Internet of Things)

By: Sonny Zulhuda

Today I will be speaking at the IT Governance, Assurance and Security Conference 2015, held annually by ISACA Malaysia and the Malaysian National Computer Confederation (MNCC). In the slotted debate panel, I will be speaking about the problems and challenges brought about the Internet of Things (IoT) vis a vis individuals’ privacy. My debate counterpart will be Mr. Hizamuddin from MDEC.

Here are some details:

The summary of my points are aa follows:

=== IoT vs Privacy ===

1. IoT is conceptually flawed/problematic because it equates human and other objects (“things”)

* Under EU Data protection law, there is a legal rule protecting individuals against data automated processes

* IoT, like any other innovations, is wrongly perceived as technical matters, not really human affairs

* Privacy is a fundamental need, its protection cannot be sidelined, reduced or outsourced to others (including things)

2. Businesses looking for a quick RoI, invested only on technical requirements, not on the prerequisite culture

3. Those countries who introduce IoT (US, EU, Japan, Korea) are already equipped with a strong privacy laws, unlike Malaysia where the law is in the making at initial stage.

ISACA Feb 2014This will be my first speech on PDPA after the lapse of 3-month grace period set up by the PDP authority in Malaysia. I can foresee the level of enthusiasm from participants is high.
