Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (or the IoT) is all about connectivity – linking “smart” objects to the internet and to each other and turning data gathered by sensors into actionable intelligence.

The IoT holds tremendous promise to infuse trillions of dollars into the economy over the next decade and to transform and improve our lives in ways we cannot yet imagine. 

Alongside this rapid expansion of new technologies come novel and complex legal and policy challenges.  To help WBK clients thrive in the IoT landscape, our interdisciplinary team offers expert advice on legal and policy issues that lie at the heart of the IoT.  Whether drafting “privacy by design” practices and procedures, navigating the FCC’s equipment authorization process, responding to cybersecurity implications of billions of new connected devices, or advocating what regulatory frameworks should apply to all (or none) of it, we offer a holistic approach to addressing our clients’ business and legal needs.
