IoT is all the rage in many industries. Property developers, investors, and brokers are increasingly deploying these technologies, as well as automation, to lure potential buyers with connected appliances like refrigerators, water heaters, heating/cooling systems, security cameras, and more -- which of which can increase operational efficiency in homes and commercial properties. However, there’s an important caveat to the IoT industry that can become a major risk: security.

In this session, attorneys discuss the core security principles of IoT devices, the privacy risks associated with IoT infrastructure, and the biggest challenges and opportunities in the IoT landscape.

This program was recorded as part of ALM & Corporate Counsel's Annual General Counsel Conference on September 26th, 2019.
