Cookies and data protection rr

Jaroslav Tajbr, Petra Věžníková
Discussion and reflections on GDPR have already resounded in the public space for some time. This European regulation raised an unexpected wave of interest and criticism of the professional (and often also lay) public. It cannot be denied that this regulation helped raise awareness of personal data protection and privacy as such. However, the European Union has not yet said the last word in this respect. One of the other acts which will strongly affect legal regulation in the sphere of privacy protection is the forthcoming ePrivacy regulation. This text focuses on one of its aspects, namely cookies and their impact on privacy.

Security aspects of Industry 4.0 rr

Vladimír Smejkal
Industry 4.0 is associated with many optimistic visions. Because of its impact on human society, security is a very important aspect of the realization of visions that we call Industrial 4.0, Company 4.0, Smart City with Smart House and Smart Transport etc. Systems that are part of Industry 4.0 (ICS/SCADA/DCS) are historically more vulnerable than traditional ICT systems. And other visions related to the growing presence of artificial intelligence in these areas will require even greater caution.

Slovak Electronic Identity Card (eID) – Part III. rr

Peter Handzuš
It is the right time for evolution from current eID cards to mobile eIDs, which will significantly increase comfort of the user and overall usage of electronic services. There are various approaches and innovative solutions addressing this topic. Besides fo-llowing its own criteria, governments should take into consideration also requirements of the commercial sector that objectively and timely correlate and thus can lead to synergic effect resulting in prompt adoption. Currently forming trends show that mobile devices have the potential to completely substitute not only eID card, but also other types of identity documents in the future so we can have them always close at hand and which are accepted in the electronic as well as the physical world internationally.

ATMs are basically just computers running on Windows OS with specialized peripheral hardware.
