The Internet of Things (IOT) is defined as billions of vehicles, buildings, process control devices, wearables, medical devices, drones, consumer/business products, mobile phones, tablets, and other “smart” objects that are wirelessly connecting to and communicating with each other. This new top law practice area is raising unprecedented legal and liability issues.

Attend this ABA institute to:

  • Discover why corporate, law firm, government, university, and other attendees gave the last two IoT Institutes rave reviews, calling it “magical,” “eye-opening,” with “rock star” speakers, and overall “a grand slam.”
  • Gain insights and practical guidance on the latest legal, legislative, regulatory, and liability issues of the IoT transformation—a game-changer for businesses, policymakers, and lawyers that’s generating hundreds of billions of dollars in spending globally.
  • Explore need-to-know IoT hot topics: big data/ privacy, cybersecurity, litigation/mitigation, cloud/artificial intelligence, connected healthcare, ethics, global IoT product development and sales, insurance risk allocation, and homeland/national security.
