The Internet of Things - An Introduction to the Legal & Regulatory Issues
The Internet of Things (IoT) has been with us for some while.
It is the network of physical objects embedded with electronics, sensors, software and network connectivity, that enables these objects to collect, process and share information. From medical devices to chipped animals to smart fridges and to wearables, the benefits of IoT are there to see, but there are a number of legal and regulatory issues to consider such human rights, data protection, contractual liability, IP, employment rights and more.
In this live broadcast session Robert Bond will explain IoT and then highlight the legal and regulatory issues that arise from the use and reliance upon IoT as well as the benefits and risks from smart homes, smart toys and smart cities.
