Internet of Things

Internet of Things (IoT) is changing how we live, see the world, and do business. Devices that formerly existed only in the physical world are now entering the digital world. Connecting these devices to the Internet requires companies to account for new considerations: primarily those related to communications, privacy, and cybersecurity. Our seasoned cross-practice IoT team helps you navigate these challenges in this emerging area.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is about extending connectivity to all types of devices. Refrigerators that indicate when you are running low on groceries, wearable sensors that track your heart rate, and electrical outlets that monitor your electricity usage are just some examples. The ability to capture, analyze and proactively act on this data represents a tremendous opportunity.

But connecting these devices to the Internet raises many novel and difficult issues that touch on a range of legal topics such as communications, privacy, cybersecurity, digital health, and intellectual property. Hogan Lovells’ global team of experts can help clients find solutions.

This IoT Topic Center provides a portal to all the valuable resources that Hogan Lovells has produced on this quickly changing topic.
