November 21, 2018 – DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, today demonstrated how its AeroScope remote identification technology can be a key element in an unmanned traffic management (UTM) system that safely integrates drones and traditional aircraft into the same airspace.
Integrating drones into airspace is an issue facing regulators globally, as safety concerns are prominent, while the economic potential of the technology needs to be allowed to develop and flourish. Managing this traffic with an effective system occupies many companies, hence the launch of U-Space, an initiative to implement pan-European Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM).
The legal services sector is not immune from the impact of technology. Neither is it immune to its perceived utility and value by both consumers and businesses. All sectors of enterprise go through a phase where tradition, specialist skills and powerful franchises appear to provide genetic protection from external pathogens! Caveat venditor!
Software vendors have a responsibility to help customers comply with the GDPR. In fact, their role is clearly defined in the regulation – Article 25 – Data protection by design and by default. Vendors need to proactively consider how their technology could potentially be used in a negative context and put in place controls to reduce the risks to users.
