Internet of Things
Note from the Editor:
Joshua Harris will moderate the breakout session “From 0-60: Privacy and the New Generation of Connected Cars,” which will include insight from FordDirect General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer Beth Hill, CIPP/US, and Scheja und Partner, Bonn (Germany) External Data Protection Officer Boris Reibach, at the IAPP Global Privacy Summit in Washington, DC, this March.
The big news out of this year’s Consumer Electronics Show was the wide range of autos offering connected technologies, so-called “connected cars.” This latest introduction to the Internet of Things is already reshaping the auto industry. AAA recently estimated that one in five new cars sold this year will collect and transmit data outside the vehicle. According to one survey, cars may make up over five percent of connected devices by 2025.
The benefit of these technologies is hard to overstate.
