We are well on our way toward a future in which a multitude of devices—from our thermostats, to our cars, to wearable sensors, to products not yet conceived—will be connected to the Internet and to each other. A recent study found that eighty-five percent of businesses across the globe are exploring and adopting Internet-connected devices. This fast-developing phenomenon is referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT). A central feature of the IoT is the collection, transmission, and sharing of information, at both the aggregate and the individual level, and at massive scale. While this presents enormous opportunities for improvements and innovations in products and services, it also presents very significant challenges in the areas of privacy and cybersecurity.
In this two-hour live webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide in-depth discussion of this timely and important topic. Speakers will also offer best practices for companies in developing and implementing effective security strategies and reducing legal and regulatory risks while they bring their IoT-based products and services to market and execute on their business strategies.
Cooley partner and privacy & data protection co-chair Matthew D. Brown will speak at this event.
