On July 16, 2019, our Privacy and Cybersecurity and Litigation teams presented a webinar, “Cyberthreats in the Internet of Things”. Speakers explored some techniques to exploit potential vulnerabilities in connected devices and how those types of events impact organizations from a regulatory and litigation perspective.

The proliferation of connected devices across industry sectors has led to the emergence of a significant and distinct threat to many types of organizations, from electric utilities deploying IoT devices across its smart grid to financial institutions using IoT devices in conference rooms that may connect to the same network that financial data flows through.
