The Internet in Everything

This concluding chapter argues that privacy and security have to take primacy as aspirational values as networks shift from digital only to directly embedded in the physical world. It calls for various stakeholders to urgently take serious cyber-physical policy choices and collectively elevate cybersecurity as a generational imperative necessary for human security, economic security, and national security. For example, a long-standing Internet policy tradition, while varying by region, is immunity from liability for information intermediaries. What counts as an intermediary in cyber-physical architectures and how should risk, accountability, and liability be reconceptualized in the high-risk era? Ultimately, the chapter contends that policy attention needs to shift from digital content to digital infrastructure.
