The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on The Internet of Things and Data Privacy Compliance: Strengthening Resilience in a Vulnerable Landscape

New York, NY, January 16, 2016 --( The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: The Internet of Things and Data Privacy Compliance: Strengthening Resilience in a Vulnerable Landscape Live Webcast. This two-hour event is scheduled on February 11, 2016 at 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM ET.

Event Synopsis:
As companies struggle to cope with data privacy law complexities, the Internet of Things (IoT) will be making data privacy compliance even more difficult. These rapidly proliferating connected devices collect, transmit, store and potentially share vast amounts of data, some of it highly personal. IoT devices present new risks to security and privacy, and pose challenges to the application of traditional privacy principles. For instance, a recent Ofcom-commissioned study revealed that there is an unbridgeable disparity between the need to gain consumers' informed personal-data-processing consent and the fact that a number of consumers do not read privacy policies over the Internet. Effective disclosures are even more difficult on IoT devices, which may lack any interface for the consumer. Further, IoT devices present unique security challenges and are vulnerable to a variety of serious security risks, affecting both personal data and, in some cases, the physical safety of consumers.

In a two-hour, live webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth discussion of various data privacy compliance issues in the Internet-of-Things backdrop. Speakers will also offer best Data Privacy Compliance practices and suggest ways to avoid future

Key topics include:

• Internet of Things (IoT) – Security Risks

• Existing Data Privacy Law Shortfalls
