As connected devices become increasingly widespread, new privacy and security concerns grow. Internet of Things devices often are not designed with security in mind — they may serve as stepping stones to broader networks containing sensitive data, their flaws may physically endanger people, and their use by everyday consumers means that they exist in many households without the supervision of a skilled network administrator.

This panel is the first in a series of lunch-timers on law and technology. Each program explores the current state of an emerging technology and the legal, policy, and ethical considerations that stem from it.
