There is no denying the massive benefits that internet-connected devices can provide. But, along with smart products, the Internet of Things brings attendant risks to privacy, cybersecurity, and even physical safety. These risks have only multiplied as the number of internet-connected devices has grown enormously over the last two decades. And—unsurprisingly, given this explosive growth—policymakers, consumers, and even the tech industry have not yet caught up with the privacy and security challenges raised by the Internet of Things. This talk will examine the vulnerabilities that internet-connected devices introduce, the roadblocks that make it difficult to address these challenges, and the possibilities for creative policymaking that can mitigate the risks.
