Reflection on the strategy of the G7 at the advent of the data economy and the need to build trust in digital technologies such as 5G
Given the specificities of these technologies and the new usages they support, their deployment heightens the threats to the security of electronic communications and, further, all economic activity. Moreover, such technologies increasingly rely on exploitation of data flows, with applicable rules on international data transfer, collection and retention that will be crucial for their development. In this context, the G7 countries need to adopt a strategy to reconcile the development of innovation and deployment of these technologies, while guaranteeing a trustworthy environment for their citizens that ensures protection of their fundamental rights, such as protection of privacy and personal data.
