How to protect the location privacy of connected workers

How to protect the location privacy of connected workers

For mission critical operations, every second matters. To protect connected workforces, location data is key. The top priority for a fire chief, for example, is to know exactly where each of their firefighters are inside a burning building at all times.

Everyone cares about safety—ensuring they can return home safely after a hard work day. The more accurate the location data, the greater protection companies can provide their workers. But companies also want to balance the privacy concerns of their workers. A 2010 survey shows that 55% of location-based services users are concerned about their loss of location privacy.

With advances in technology, there are data processing and architecture techniques that allow companies to use the same aggregate data while still preserving worker privacy. Join SensorUp Founder & CTO Dr. Steve Liang for an in-depth technical discussion on how you can ensure your IoT data architecture is structured to handle privacy concerns.

Webinar takeaways:

  • Review the privacy considerations for geolocation data in an industrial setting
  • Learn the reference architecture of processing real-time location data streams
  • Understand  the three categories of privacy preserving techniques for location data
  • Learn how your technical teams can work with experts to design their IoT and AI applications to preserve data privacy
