Check back here at 9 am on Oct. 21 for live video of Securing the Internet of Things: How can policymakers help? Sign up for Passcode's email newsletter for further updates and tweet to join the conversation at #dcIOT.
With some 200 billion connected devices expected to be in homes, offices, and cars by the end of 2020, policymakers, lawmakers, and privacy watchdogs are increasingly alarmed about the security and privacy implications of the Internet of Things. Many are pressing for laws to protect consumers. At the same time, many tech firms are pushing back and warning regulation will stifle innovation. Is there a middle ground where regulation can aid users without blunting the growth of IoT?
Join us for an in-depth discussion with leading figures from Congress, the Federal Trade Commission, and some of the world's biggest technology companies to understand how Washington is thinking about IoT right now, and what the private sector is doing on its own to safeguard this fast emerging marketplace.
