A major theme this year will be the safety of connected products and services for children.
It is estimated that 20 billion devices are now connected to the internet, with this number growing exponentially. This creates new challenges to the safety of digital children’s products, including the possibility of devices being hacked, the non-consensual harvesting of children’s data and questions about the consequences for children’s mental health.
The first day of this year’s G20 Consumer Summit, will explore these issues and discuss how governments, businesses and NGOs can work together to develop effective responses.
