The Rise of Internet of Things Security Laws – Part II

Blank Rome LLP

This is the second part of a two-part article examining the enactment of California’s Internet of Things (“IoT”) security law, and the wave of similar IoT laws expected to follow close behind in 2020. The first part of this article, which appeared in the June 2020 issue of Pratt’s Privacy & Cybersecurity Law Report, discussed the current legal landscape as it relates to the security of connected devices and took a closer look at California’s new IoT security law – which went into effect at the start of the year. This second part provides tips and strategies for IoT device manufacturers to comply with the IoT security regulations expected to begin to blanket the country.

In the blink of an eye, Internet of Things (“IoT”) technology – which connects household and consumer items to the internet – brought about advanced capabilities that were just years ago thought to be matters of science fiction. Notable examples include connected cars, smart homes, and wearable tech, just to name a few.

Originally published in the July/August 2020 edition of Pratt’s Privacy & Cybersecurity Law Report (Vol. 6, No. 6).
