Hello IoTians!

You are invited to an educational session involving legal/regulatory aspects of IoT Privacy and Security.

The issues are as current as recent headlines:

Was your voting machine hacked??? Presidential candidate Jill Stein has asked for a recount in Pennsylvania.

On October 21, 2016, consumers were unable to reach Netflix, Twitter, CNN and several other well-known websites. This was because Dyn, a provider of core Internet services for these sites, was in the midst of a global Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack via a botnet composed of malware-infected IoT devices such as DVRs, home monitors, and webcams.

How private are your personal details when your Fitbit or Apple Watch broadcasts your heart rate and GPS location?

As gizmos such as your TV set, refrigerator and even front door lock are marketed with universal connectivity, has our safety and privacy been sacrificed?

Join us to explore these issues, and to hear about efforts to address them by Congress, government agencies, and private standards-development companies such as UL.

Our Speaker: Gerry Elman, co-organizer of our Meetup, heads the boutique firm of Elman Technology Law in Media, PA, and is experienced in the legal issues relating to cybersecurity and intellectual property. He has been a Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania and a trial attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice.
