Flatirons Report: Future of the Internet of Things in Mission Critical Applications

By Jeffrey Westling

The “Internet of Things” (IoT) promises many benefits to improve efficiency and quality of life for consumers and society as a whole. As IoT devices develop and proliferate, new vulnerabilities open up to bad actors, and the wide range of devices present heightened risk that some will interfere with others, risking potentially catastrophic failures. The Silicon Flatirons Center for Law, Technology, and Entrepreneurship held a roundtable in Washington, D.C. on June 22, 2016 to discuss the promise of IoT technology and what role, if any, the government can play in the oversight of security and spectrum interference concerns. This report captures the insights from that discussion and supplements them with relevant research.
