Privacy + Data Security
In The News
While data security and privacy laws are traditionally focused on specific types of high-risk data, the passage of California law SB 327 is aimed at tightening security for all devices that are connected to the IoT.
“For me, one of the interesting aspects of this IoT security law is it doesn’t refer to personal information at all,” said Morrison & Foerster partner Christine E. Lyon in the IoT World Today article, “2020 California IoT Law Could Raise the Bar for Security.” It also doesn’t single out consumer devices. Instead, the law essentially says: “If a device is connected to the internet or capable of being connected – if it has an IP, Bluetooth address or equivalent, then you have to have security.”
