On Thursday, January 29, Covington’s Global Privacy and Data Security Practice Group will host a webinar on the Internet of Things (IoT). The webinar will cover the full federal, state, and international legal landscape governing IoT technology. While the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is expected to release a report soon on privacy issues raised by IoT, the FTC is not the only regulator actively addressing issues surrounding IoT products and services. Several other federal entities have released or are working on guidance specific to the IoT, including the Federal Communications Commission, Food and Drug Administration, Department of Transportation and National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, Department of Energy, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee. Several states have adopted laws impacting IoT products and services, and international governments — particularly in the European Union — have begun to show an interest in IoT developments. The webinar will run from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. EST. Please join us by registering here.
