The Internet of Things is the new buzzword, but what are the hazards, where do they lurk, and how concerned should the consumer products industry be?  As consumer product manufacturers of all levels of sophistication race to connect their products, what should they consider? What is the proper role of government in analyzing and regulating these risks? What is the “good, better, and best” of security by design for a new connected device being brought to market? What are some of the tools that companies have at their disposal – both in-house and through third-parties – to best protect their customers (and, ultimately, their company) from a runaway product defect on a connected device. Join us as we look at the issue, study examples, and learn about some of the cutting-edge investments and work being done on this issue.
