      MHC Tech Law: IoT devices under the regulatory microscope

      Earlier this year, the Global Privacy Enforcement Network (GPEN) published the results of its global privacy review of internet of things (IoT) devices. This annual review, dubbed the ‘Privacy Sweep’, found that many companies failed to explain to users how their personal data is collected, stored and safeguarded, via devices that boast internet connectivity. GPEN found that companies demonstrating good privacy communication practices were in the minority.

      What will the industrial internet of things mean for you?

      Even our swimwear could soon be part of the internet of things (IoT), if Vodafone has anything to do with it.

      As RS Components shows in its infographic below, the industrial IoT revolution will be powered by intelligent machines, using low-cost sensors and long-range wireless technology.

      We reported earlier this week that Trinity College Dublin was the first Irish university to join the LoRa Alliance, an international organisation encouraging the rapid deployment of the IoT.
