Ethics and privacy issues of critical infrastructure protection – risks and possible solutions through standardization

Wurster, Simone

Recent studies propose a paradigm shift in standardization strategies and research and the use of ethical aspects as an additional factor to explain standardization success. This article goes one step further. It focuses on specific ethical and privacy standards and introduces privacy as a new dimension of the interplay between standards nd innovation in the fields of civil security and the protection of critical infrastructures. Based on a survey, it represents mainly German and European perspectives. The article finishes by giving recommendations for new privacy standards which may help to raise acceptance for several new security solutions.
