Understanding the Internet of Things (IoT) and Protecting Against the Risks of Connectivity
Kelly Twigger, a Principal at ESI Attorneys an Information Law and eDiscovery Law Firm based in Boulder, Colorado, will present the following:
The Internet of Things (IoT) — the connection of devices that capture information via wireless— provides incredible potential for the collection and use of data. Smart devices such as cars, phones, fitness bands, thermostats, gaming devices and televisions create entry points to a network that becomes an Internet of Things when all connected together.
However, the same connectivity that affords great opportunity to capture and measure data also raises questions of privacy and security once those devices are connected to organizational networks. Those risks require awareness and planning. Ms. Twigger will discuss how the IoT works, how it can create vulnerabilities, risks and breaches of privacy and security, and outline steps to take to protect your home and organizations from potential intrusions and data theft.
