4.4 The future is already here
4.4.2 Internet of Everything - Recommendations
- The multi-faceted nature of the Internet of Everything (IoE) demands an equally diverse response by law enforcement and all other relevant stakeholders. Apart from the necessary skills, knowledge and expertise that law enforcement needs to investigate IoE-related crimes, co-operation and co-ordination together with public-private partnerships will play an increasingly important role. This could include, for instance, setting up repositories on how to collect, cross-reference and analyse data recovered from a range of devices in compliance with relevant privacy and data protection frameworks and rules.
- As the IoE is becoming more widely adopted, the amount and types of digital forensics resources required by law enforcement agencies need to adapt and grow accordingly.
- Industries involved in making the IoE a reality need to be encouraged to consider security as part of the design process .
- Last but not least, policy makers need to stay abreast of the latest developments in this area in order to ensure that effective, efficient and balanced legislation and regulations are in place.
