At SimplySecure’s excellent Underexposed conference we discussed the importance of making it easier for those involved in making connected products and services to make safe, secure, and privacy-conscious products. After all, they might be experts, but necessarily security experts, for example. So, toolkit time!
I asked participants in the room as well as publicly on Twitter which toolkits and resources are worth knowing. This is what this looked like in the room:
“Which toolkits should we all know? Ethics, privacy, security”
Here’s the tweet that went with it:
Which toolkits for designers, devs etc for ethics, privacy, security should we all know? #underexposed— Peter Bihr ? (@peterbihr) November 9, 2017
So what are the toolkit recommendations? Given the privacy-sensitive nature of the event, I’m linking to the source only where people send the recommendations on public Twitter. Also, please note I’m including them without much background, and unchecked. So here goes:
- SimplySecure: Knowledge Base
- Jet Gispen: EthicsForDesigners.com
- Microsoft: Privacy Ideation Cards. Playing the Legal Card: Using Ideation Cards to Raise Data Protection Issues within the Design Process , some more background.
- IDEO: designkit.org
- Doteveryone Ethical Tech Initiatives Directory (meta overview), via Laura James
- Value-sensitive Design by Friedman et al: vsdesign.org
- ThingsCon: Resources (meta list of resources around responsible IoT specifically)
- Transition Design by Buckminster Fuller (PDF overview?)
- The Bytegeist: Using design fiction and science fiction to interrogate privacy in sensing technologies via Richmond W
This list can by no means claim to be complete, but hopefully it will still be useful to some of you.
