Millennial Users in a 5G Context
discusses issues related to that the fact that not only is The Millennial Generation born between 1982-2004 the biggest generation ever worldwide, it is also the first generation with a tight digital life and at the same time also an understanding what was before. It is expected that the Millennial generation could have specific requirements for future digital networks and services according to their skills, knowledge and expectation levels. This paper present one picture of the Millennial generation and some thinking/requirements to the 5G networks. The paper looks at the Millennial generation from a general level (through literature) and presents empirical work in which focus groups have been run to discuss specific 5G network issues. The paper concludes that Millennials have expectations that 5G will happen as a natural development and progress. They do not see themselves to have an interest or pay for all implementations of all 5G use cases but only for them ones with direct relevance for them. Also privacy and security is a key factor that they expect to the managed in some way.
Cybersecurity and Privacy – Bridging the Gap
Cybersecurity and privacy are global issues with a local impact. When any security or privacy breach occurs, it impacts our society at all levels. Trust in the digital platforms is lost; companies loose revenue and even public institutions are discredited. These two issues have become major concerns of wide groups of today’s globally connected society; the scientific community; industry; governments and politicians; and civic groups. Our every-day life is very much dependent on the connected devices we are surrounded by – mobile phones, computer in homes and offices, sensors and machines in factories, hospitals etc. Cybersecurity and privacy concerns are fueled by the collection of huge amount of data exchanged by the connected devices and increasingly collected by Internet of Things (IoT) creating a huge amount of data that will be stored in data centers and accessible as via cloud services in cross referenced selections. The book analyses and discusses ongoing technical, legal and socio-economic trends bringing together views from academia and industry providing a background for understanding the dynamic and interrelated concepts cybersecurity and privacy that are shaping all aspects of our future society.
Beyond that, a new book entitled ‘A Handbook on ICT in Developing Countries’ will be available soon.
