Technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) are rapidly changing the way people interact with the world. Companies are regularly developing products like the internet-connected cameras and medical devices that are expected to bring enormous benefits to consumers. However, these devices may collect, transmit, store, and potentially share vast amounts of consumer data, including highly sensitive information that may potentially threaten the privacy rights of consumer.

Considering the emerging threats to data security and the potential risks that the evolving IoT technologies might bring, consumers must have adaptive data security enforcement tools and practices that will shield against unauthorized access to both personal information and the device functionality itself. Furthermore, companies should never stop examining their data practices and policies that impose reasonable limits on the collection and retention of consumer data.

Despite today’s more regulated and enlightened IoT environment, we continue to witness failures of privacy and security risks management. In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of key-thought leaders and well-versed professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will go beyond the basics to explore the regulations, liabilities, and privacy strategies associated in the evolving landscape of IoT. Speakers will also offer the audience with an extensive discussion of what questions corporate directors, management, technology lawyers, and IoT professionals should ask to ensure that their companies not only follow the rules, but uphold to the principles of mitigating privacy and security risks.

Key Issues:

• Current Regulations Governing the IoT
• Developing Privacy Policies Consistent with FTC’s IoT Guidance
• Risks Assessment and Management
• FDA Guidelines for Medical Devices
• Trends in Cyber Litigation
• Health Care Privacy & HIPAA
• IT Integration & Cyber Security
• Wearable Privacy and Data Security Best Practices
