Security, privacy key to any ‘smart digital transformation’: Hossein Moiin (VIDEO)

There are real opportunities to use technologies to transform not just the telecom industry, but many industries, such as healthcare, energy and others, says Hossein Moiin, technology advisor for Nokia.

“Smart digital transformation means that we use technology to improve our lives, and what I mean by that is that we are very cognizant of the benefits, but also the pitfalls of new technologies,” said Moiin, during an interview on the sidelines of the ITU Telecom World event in Busan, Republic of Korea. “Any transformation will have positives, but also side effects that we need to mitigate and have plans for.”

In the next five years, the key will be to spread new technologies “to the broad society, but in a manner that respects fundamental human rights, such as privacy, such as security,” said Moiin.

Moiin also discussed how Nokia is approaching the rollout of 5G infrastructure and services.
