Internet of Things
The Internet of Things is radically changing the way we work, do business, and live. IoT products can provide huge benefits – and add potential challenges. We’re here to help tackle these challenges and thrive.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing virtually every industry. Communication, cybersecurity, healthcare, manufacturing, energy, and beyond – IoT’s applications are practically limitless. So are the opportunities and challenges IoT presents. To compete, you need lawyers with knowledge of and solutions to current and emerging IoT issues to keep you a step ahead.
IoT applications help objects connect to the internet and to each other using built-in sensors that collect and exchange large amounts of data. As sensors and data storage become more affordable, data analytics and machine connectivity are transforming smart cities, supply chains, transport systems, connected buildings, digital health and telemedicine, retail and wearable technologies, homes, and automobiles.
