The Internet of Things Threats
People and devices are more interconnected than ever. As a result, Cybersecurity Law and Data Privacy Law are some of the most rapidly changing areas of law. While the laws are quickly changing, often times, they can’t even keep up with the technology that changes in the blink of an eye… and so do the threats.
Hackers and bad actors have an easy job, all they have to do is find one entry point or weakness at a single moment—and they are quite skilled, employing technical measures (e.g. hacking, brute force attacks, etc.) and social engineering techniques (e.g. “phishing” or “whaling”). Meanwhile, businesses must protect all possible entry points at all times—while trying to successfully operate their businesses and serve customers. Cybersecurity threats and risks do not only originate from the outside. Employees and poor internal controls can create vulnerabilities either through intentional conduct (e.g. employees stealing or selling data) or by mere accident (e.g. leaving a phone or laptop in an Uber). Any of these scenarios can trigger a mandatory, legal obligation for a business to report a data breach to regulatory authorities, customers, and the public. Such an event can have lasting impact on a business, and in some instances, destroy the business’ reputation or the business itself.
