The Internet of Things: Everything Will Be Connected

eDiscovery People

Learn about the hot Internet of Things law topics you need to know in our increasingly connected world.

We live in a connected world, where billions of vehicles, buildings, process control devices, wearables, medical devices, drones, consumer/business products, mobile phones, tablets, and other “smart” objects are wirelessly connecting to and communicating with each other. Forecasted by Gartner, Inc. to reach 20.4 billion connected things by 2020, with trillions of dollars in spending, this so-called “Internet of Things” or IoT is raising unprecedented legal and liability issues and becoming one of the hottest new law practice areas.

This fast-paced and stimulating panel will provide appetizer-size coverage of hot IoT law topics everyone needs to know, regardless of practice area:

  • Beyond the buzzwords: what is IoT, what’s driving it, and who regulates it
  • Ripped from the headlines: lessons learned from recent IoT missteps
  • IoT on trial: mass torts, class actions, and theories of liability
  • Securing the insecure: IoT’s Achilles heel
  • Practical steps to minimize risks

The ABA will seek 1.50 CLE ethics credit hours in 60-minute-hour states, and 1.80 ethics credit hours of CLE credit for this program in 50-minute states. Credit hours are estimated and are subject to each state’s approval and credit rounding rules.
