Data Spaces


The impact of privacy on data space architectures and ecosystems is a major concern. Beyond the fact that data ecosystems involve many ICT systems, many organisations and deal with the Vs (volume, variety, velocity, veracity, value), they will also have to deal with the following challenges:

  • New technology integration. The creation of new IoT, AI, digital twin technology can impact on the sustainability of the data space architecture
  • New emerging risks created the integration of systems (including cross domain systems)
  • New organisation roles integration. For instance, the role of privacy preference administrator (as introduced in ISO/IEC 27556) can have an impact on other roles (data provider, data user, data platform operator)
  • New privacy enhancing technology. A data space platform should have a flexible architecture allowing it to integrate novel privacy preserving capabilities.
  • New policy and regulation. New policies and regulations will have to be taken into account.
  • Need for tracking capabilities, i.e., tracking the provenance and destiny of data throughout its lifecycle
  • Need for assurance of privacy protection capabilities, i.e., ensuring that two data processing operators have the same protection level.
  • Need for a commonly agree trust practice at the ecosystem level (i.e. ecosystem of trust)
