In a follow up to the FTC’s interest in understanding how data collectors obtain and use person consumer data, they have again posted a request for comments regarding the interconnectedness of IT devices. This means IP medical devices, wireless routers in cars, and all other forms of ubiquitous computing with the capability of communicating with other devices. Specifically, it seems they want to better understand the security and privacy implications of these devices: where are we going and what does it all mean?
Great questions! The call is available here: http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2013/04/internetthings.shtm
