There is one absolute truth about The Internet of Things (IoT) and all related connected smart devices which is that they are going to change our lives. The real question then becomes is change going to be for the better? If an IoT device or application saves lives, or fuel consumption or makes daily life easier I’m all for that. But at what cost? The more and more internet connected devices that are out there collecting and sharing data we run the risk of an increase in the threat to our privacy as there is little doubt hackers and thieves are coming up with ways to steal our very private confidential information.
If you are concerned about The Internet of Things data, privacy and security legal issues, you should consider spending time and money making sure your software, app or device has security protections built into it. Let hackers know right up front that your company takes security and protection of user confidential data and information very seriously.
Before building your IoT product you need to hire the right people who have been properly vetted for security purposes. Every partner, vendor and employee needs to sign a rigorous non-disclosure agreement (NDA) putting all on notice that if trade secrets, code, IP or confidential information belonging to the company is stolen or misappropriated that your company will go to the mat and take swift legal action against all violators.
What about third party corporate espionage? No one really wants to talk about this in the context of the Internet of Things. One company could plant a mole in another company and that person could get access to valuable data hypothetically about user heart rates which the company stealing the data could use to build a better product or sell to a third party.
