The Internet of Things (IoT) wave was evident more than ever at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) held recently in Las Vegas where more than 4,500 exhibitors showcased their latest tech innovations. Industry Director Steve Griffith moderated a panel there called, “Navigating Regional and Global Policies for IoT Consumer Markets.”
During the panel, attendees discussed how international trade policies like GDPR, and industry regulation, may inhibit opportunities for global IoT devices, networks, and services. They also discussed common issues such as cybersecurity, data privacy, interoperability, and energy impacts (such as standby power). ei
