Today more than ever, society is looking for ways to be more sustainable. Technology has a crucial role to play and we find out how the Internet of Things is now delivering greater connectivity and efficiency for organizations across the world.

While focus has been placed on Europe and its adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) over the past year, we look further afield at how personal data is kept secure across the globe. Some 80 countries have regulations in place surrounding data privacy, with laws at both federal and state level to guarantee this happens.

Elsewhere, biometrics is making its mark on the automotive sector, with the 2024 market forecast to reach US$303 million. And Deloitte’s latest cyber security survey reveals organizations are lacking the funds required to keep data secure.
