In one of the highlights of IFSEC 2018, Dahua Technology held a panel discussion over GDPR and cybersecurity, joined by TÜV Rheinland and Synopsys during the show with PSI in attendance.

Together with Daniel Chau, Dahua Overseas Marketing Director, Udo Scalla, Global Head Centre of Excellence- IOT Privacy, TÜV Rheinland and Adam Brown, Manager of Security Solutions of Synopsys, held a discussion over topics including cybersecurity best practices in electronic security applications, GDPR implications within electronic security applications and required actions, and possible effects of GDPR over AI applications in security.

“Personal data security and data subject rights should be highly respected and protected. GDPR will lead to market changes and non-negligible impacts towards global security players, including Dahua Technology,” said Daniel Chau.

“How we need to change our mindset, and even consider education so people start recognising their personal data has value and should be managed in the same way our finances are. We know where our money is, but do we really know who has our personal data and how it’s used?” Udo Scalla said.

Adam Brown stated: “AI uses video meta-data, which can be personal data, so covered by GDPR. This means AI and GDPR are inextricably linked and GDPR should be considered in companies’ use of AI technology.”

“We would like to explore a widest possibility between technology innovation and the growing demands for privacy and security,” concluded Daniel Chau.
