FLIP Buzzwords:

Internet of Things

Wednesday 30 September · 3:00pm - 4:30pm · 1.5 CPD Units

We are delighted to bring you our next instalment of the FLIP Buzzwords series covering the “Internet of Things (IoT)”.

IoT devices are machine endpoints of internet-enabled, data-driven services including smart wearables, speakers, connected car, home automation, building and utility meter, monitoring and surveillance devices.

The enterprise and automotive IoT market is forecast to grow to 5.8 billion endpoints in 2020, according to Gartner Inc., a 21% increase from 2019. COVID-19 has accelerated that growth.

IoT devices and the services they support are rapidly changing the legal profession. Legal compliance and governance of services enabled by IoT-gathered data requires new processes of risk assessment and management, and new forms of contract between service providers and customers.

Our September instalment of FLIP Buzzwords brings together a panel of experts to explore the IoT, and discuss the opportunities and challenges the IoT poses for lawyers.

In this session, our experts will explore:

  • What is IoT?
  • The difference between B2B and B2C IoT
  • Contracting for IoT
  • Addressing IoT security, privacy, product liability, risk and evidentiary issues, and consumer protection.
