The breakneck development of the Internet of Things brings within it ever-greater vulnerability for companies, requiring more meticulous management of sensitive data and enhanced information risk management. And this generates activity that is increasingly unconnected to the will of those people who are capable of directly controlling its effects.
Who is liable in the event of damages? Who designed the system? Who maintains it? And, finally, who authorized its use, thus assuming responsibility for any ensuing risk? This complex scenario requires that companies be ever-more conscious of the governance involving client/supplier contracts.
With the contribution of lawyer Pier Luigi Perri (Professor in Advanced Computer Law and Advisor to the Council of Europe, Strasbourg), we will look at the thorny and sensitive issue of service contracts and Smart Contracts, and we will examine the elements required to manage risk as reflected in the level of service, liability and guarantees.
Pier Luigi Perri received his law degree from the University of Modena and later pursued Master’s work in IT Law and Legal Informatics at the University of Bologna, where he was also awarded a doctorate in Legal Informatics. He was non-residential Fellow at the Center for Internet Studies at Stanford University. In 2009 he was Visiting Researcher at the Department of Corporate and Legal Affairs at Microsoft, Inc. in Redmond (WA) and, in 2013, Visiting Postdoctoral Associate at the Information Society Project at Yale Law School in New Haven (CT). Perri is the author of two books (Protezione dei dati e nuove tecnologie: aspetti nazionali, europei e statunitensi and Privacy, diritto e sicurezza informatica) and numerous studies involving legal informatics and information security. He is also the Vice Director of the publication, Ciberspazio e Diritto. He is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of AIPSI (Associazione Italiana Professionisti Sicurezza Informatica–Italian Association of Information Security Professionals) and member of the Scientific & Technical Committee of the Italian Chapter of ISFA (Information Systems Forensics Association).
