This symposium explores cutting-edge regulatory challenges with respect to managing cybersecurity and privacy-related issues arising from the deployment of ‘smart’ robotics. The symposium is held under the aegis of the research projects ‘Security in Internet Governance and Networks: Analysing the Law’ (SIGNAL) and ‘Vulnerability in the Robotic Society’ (VIROS).
This symposium explores some of the myriad borders – legal, geopolitical, technical and conceptual – that inhere in, frame or catalyze regulatory challenges in the areas of cybersecurity and data privacy. The symposium is the second of four annual conferences that are being held under the aegis of the research project ‘Security in Internet Governance and Networks: Analyzing the Law’ (SIGNAL).
PhD candidate Samson Yosef Esayas at the Department of Private Law will present his PhD project: "Data Privacy and Competition Law in the Age of Big Data".
