english

The Mozilla Foundation describes itself as „a non-profit organization that promotes openness, innovation, and participation on the Internet.“ Mostly known for its popular Firefox browser, Mozilla develops a range of technologies and products to fuel the movement for a „healthy internet“. One of them is the Internet Health Report – a series of publications highlighting solutions that shape the internet so that it serves us as a society instead of harming us.

The report team combines research, interview, public comments and analysis of internet issues and produces quarterly publications and an annual status report on this basis. In this talk, Kasia presents the latest publication on the opportunities and challenges of product development in the field of smart home devices and will share insights on frameworks that can be used when developing Internet of Things products that serve and protect their users‘ privacy by design.
