Pondering the question of IoT data ownership

Sponsored by SearchCIO.com

As the use cases for the internet of things continue to expand into various sectors and the benefits of analyzing that data collected from IoT grow, the question of IoT data ownership and access privileges is coming to the fore. But we can't simply rely on traditional laws and regulations to set policies around IoT data, writes columnist and former CIO Harvey Koeppel. Instead, he says, we need a different way of thinking: one that will enable us to catch up with the fast evolution of IoT and other technologies.

In this SearchCIO handbook, Koeppel lists four broad, comprehensive questions around IoT data ownership that CIOs and IT execs should be considering and collaborating around to ensure not just their companies' success, but also the advancement of our society. In our second piece, CTO Niel Nickolaisen delves into why he thinks the "technology everywhere and in everything" world has moved IoT security and privacy to the top of CIOs' priority lists. In our last piece, Features Writer Jason Sparapani looks into two thorny IoT legal issues: data ownership and intellectual property rights.
