The increasing prevalence of the internet of things means that more parts of our life are wired than ever before. But as these “things” get more common, it is more clear than ever that many have not been designed to protect against bad actors compromising them. Does Congress have a role to play in helping protect against these threats?
On October 23, join CCIA and Access Now for a lunch briefing to discuss the technology of the internet of things, what legal recourse is currently available to victims of activity directed at insecure devices, and what can and should be done to fill the holes that exist. Complimentary lunch will be served.
