The Internet is a pretty remarkable thing – particularly the free and open services that we can all enjoy. Unfortunately, most of the products and services marketed as 'free' are far from it. And what's only recently become clear is the value of data as a kind of digital currency.
Addressing concerns about privacy and security aren't easy, but they're too important to ignore. Here in Europe there's a lot of talk about integration and the benefits offered by a single digital marketplace. I'm an optimist, but I understand that such integration will also pose new challenges and expose us to unforeseen risks.
Companies are talking to each other about how to make more money at the expense of people's privacy. Online criminals are talking to each other about how to develop the digital threat landscape. We need to start talking about privacy and security if we want to see a healthy digital culture develop. And we need to start the conversation now.
