WEBCAST TODAY: Governing the Internet of Things @isocdc @InternetGov @doctorow #iot #iotgov

livestreamToday, Friday March 30 2018, the Internet Society Washington DC Chapter (ISOC DC) and the Internet Governance Lab will host a mini-conference Governing the Internet of Things at the American University in Washington DC. The Internet’s architecture and governance structures have been designed to enable innovation, global communication and the free flow of information, but the Internet of Things presents a new range of governance challenges. An Internet embedded in the material world creates new and increased concerns around privacy, security, and the possibility of physical harm to people and disruption of material infrastructure. To what extent do the Internet’s underlying architectural and governance principles need to evolve to address these risks? What is the outlook for security and privacy in the context of ubiquitous cyber-physical systems that range from cars to medical devices to home control systems? What forms of inequality and discrimination are emerging in this environment? This panel brings together stakeholders from industry, design communities, civil society and academia to address the transformation of Internet governance in the age of cyber-physical systems. Speakers: Cory Doctorow, Author; Paul Ohm, Professor Georgetown Law; Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino, Open Internet of Things Certification Mark; Gilad Rosner, Internet of Things Privacy Forum; Tatevik Sargsyan, Ranking Digital Rights Project, New America Foundation; Adam Thierer, George Mason University; Derrick Cogburn, American University; Laura DeNardis, American University; Andrew Rens, American University.
