Considerations at the core of stakes about the Business Use of Drones



Steadily the drone industry is gaining in maturity. From technology advancements, and increasing uses cases to wide adoption, it is clear that, drones continue, and will play major roles in everyday life.

As drones reshape enterprise, enterprises must understand the potential uses of drone technology in a commercial environment, including business implications and risk considerations, as well as critical questions they must consider prior to implementing a drone program:
  • What factors must management consider prior to signing off on the acquisition and implementation of a corporate drone program?
  • What questions must be asked and answers obtained to enable management to assess the far-ranging risks associated with the use of drones as a strategic business tool?
  • What policies and procedures must be in place before the organization deploys its first corporate drone?
This whitepaper addresses these questions and more, with the intent of preparing management for the inevitable. If an organization wishes to remain competitive in today’s global marketplace, it will eventually look to drones (and their related technologies) as a competitive tool and embrace all that drone technologies have to offer.
Along with the white paper, ISACA polled its global membership to gauge the use of and planning for drones in their respective organizations. Among the findings of that survey:
  • 75 percent say security or privacy are their biggest concern about the business use of drones.
  • 65 percent say most organizations that would benefit from the use of drones are unprepared to address the necessary security and privacy requirements.
  • 63 percent do not believe their existing staff has sufficient expertise to evaluate the security of drones.
  • Just 25 percent believe the benefits of drones outweigh the security and privacy risks, but an additional 48 percent say the benefits will outweigh the risks in the future, when those concerns are addressed more thoroughly.
I have a pleasure to recall that, rushing to implement drone technology without first being properly prepared can result in both a legal and financial disaster. An uncontrolled drone program can also cause significant damage to the organization’s reputation; however, with the right controls, policies and procedures in place, a drone program can offer significant technical and competitive advantage.

4D Geographic Information System (GIS) data

It is interesting to observe that, vendors are focusing on the development of 4D GIS software. 4D GIS data includes 2D data, 3Ddata, and data regarding time change. An integrated database with real-time monitoring is required to generate 4D data. 
4DMapper is an Australia-based company that puts multi-source and multi-format geospatial data, including 3D and 4D GIS, on the cloud and streams it to browsers after rasterization and vectoring.
