Delivering Digital Inclusion without Cutting Corners
As the pandemic has pushed the need for digital inclusion to the forefront, businesses, organizations, and even municipalities are working to quickly stand up IoT solutions that can serve underconnected individuals. Often, important considerations such as data security and network reliability are sacrificed in the name of speed and ease to launch – compromises that can result in recipients’ further exclusion from online tools and opportunities, as well as costly legal and compliance issues for these organizations.
In this session, we’ll take a critical eye to the current state of digital inclusion and discuss how to build a digitally inclusive IoT solution – the right way.
