ABA - The Internet of Things: Everything Will Be Connected

January 14, 2019 • Webinar

Starts: 1:00 PM (EST)
Ends: 2:30 PM (EST)

Learn about the hot Internet of Things law topics you need to know in our increasingly connected world. This program is free to ABA members and is part of the ABA Free CLE series.

We live in a connected world, where billions of vehicles, buildings, process control devices, wearables, medical devices, drones, consumer/business products, mobile phones, tablets, and other "smart" objects are wirelessly connecting to and communicating with each other. Forecasted by Gartner, Inc. to reach 20.4 billion connected things by 2020, with trillions of dollars in spending, this so-called "Internet of Things" or IoT is raising unprecedented legal and liability issues and becoming one of the hottest new law practice areas.

This fast-paced and stimulating panel will provide appetizer-size coverage of hot IoT law topics everyone needs to know, regardless of practice area:

  • Beyond the buzzwords: what is IoT, what's driving it, and who regulates it
  • Ripped from the headlines: lessons learned from recent IoT missteps
  • IoT on trial: mass torts, class actions, and theories of liability
  • Securing the insecure: IoT's Achilles' heel
  • Practical steps to minimize risks

Partner Cheryl Falvey is a panelist for this webinar.
