Last week in Berlin MEF hosted the first meet-up in a new Consumer Trust series designed to bring together members and guests to discuss the burning issues companies must grapple with when it comes to privacy and security in the mobile ecosystem.
The evening was kindly hosted by Deutsche Telekom at their innovation space hub:raum and speakers included Samu Konttinen of F-Secure, Graham Thomas and Andreas Sommerwerk from Deutsche Telekom, Elena Turtureanu from Smaato and Michael Franzkowiak of Contiamo.
The MEF Minute was at this year’s CES in Las Vegas, checking out a wealth of new tech at the biggest consumer electronics show in the world.
Among the 8K TVs, robots and drones was a huge array of mobile phones, wearables, connected devices and innovations reliant on mobile tech.
Consumer trust in mobile is fundamental to operating within a sustainable ecosystem. MEF’s recent Consumer Trust Summit highlighted the main issues with much of the discussion given over to developing best practice that fosters transparency in what companies do with user data.
