The Internet of Things is a game-changing moment in our relationship with technology and personal data as we stand on the edge of a data explosion from interconnected devices. As with all revolutionary new technologies, the IoT brings with it new challenges for businesses, regulators, consumers – in fact anyone who cares about the responsible use of data.
In July 2014 TRUSTe hosted the first Internet of Things Privacy Summit at the Rosewood Hotel, Menlo Park. The event brought together policy makers, privacy professionals, IoT specialists and leading academics to define the privacy needs of the new inter-connected world and scope out the next generation of solutions.
But the Summit was just the start of this important privacy journey. On July 10th, a new Multi-Stakeholder IoT Tech Working Group was announced to identify the technical standards and best practices necessary to help enhance consumer privacy in the Internet of Things (IoT).
