FTC to limit collection of data in the Internet of Things / Wall Street Journal

Internet-connected wearables, cars, thermostats, ad infinitum are all the rage in Silicon Valley. But those devices can come with security and privacy holes that leave consumers exposed, regulators warned.

In a much-anticipated report on the so-called-Internet of Things, the Federal Trade Commission laid out steps businesses can take to protect consumers’ privacy. The first is to build security into devices at the outset, rather than as an afterthought. Other recommendations include: vetting partners for how they handle consumer data, taking measures to keep unauthorized users from accessing personal information stored on the network, and monitoring and patching connected devices throughout their expected life cycle…

Be careful…

Developing ‘Law of the Internet of Things’

IoT – A ‘Legal Nightmare’ / The Verge

Cyber-service appeals to the largest law firms

Blue Edge Lab consists mainly of a subscription software service called CyberTrak, which will be sold to companies for $25,000 a year. It is essentially a guide to cybersecurity-related laws and regulations around the world, covering 23 countries. Within the United States, the service is tailored to support four major sectors: government contracting, energy, financial services and health care. The program summarizes legal requirements in each jurisdiction and assesses the risk of enforcement in those jurisdictions.

Internet of Things — $14 Trillion+ (Cisco)

These technology and business trends are ushering in the age of IoE,
creating an unprecedented opportunity to connect the unconnected:
people, process, data, and things.

Internet of Everything (IoT/IoE) are still unconnected.
