The Federal Trade Commission is working towards a new approach to the Internet of Things that will meet the demands coming from all sides of the IoT space.
Following a sharp rise in the number of complaints from consumers, the United States Federal Trade Commission – whose basic mission is to promote consumer protection and eliminate anti-competitive business practices – has announced a date for its planned workshop on regulation governing the Internet of Things. It will focus on working towards clear-cut recommendations for enforcing privacy and security. This highly complex industry already accounts for over 2 billion connected objects worldwide, and is now increasingly the center of public concern over network security and personal data protection. These two areas of concern are inextricably linked, for example in such areas as ‘smart’ homes.
