Internet of Things (IoT) has increased the amount of
information organizations handle and has changed the way
this information is collected, stored and used.
The collection, storage and use of IoT information also
requires organizations to comply with a host of legal and
regulatory obligations, which vary around the world.
While the IoT is designed to make a user’s life simpler by
providing devices that react and adapt to the user – whether
a smart refrigerator, thermostat or home hub – to accomplish
this, companies that provide these devices need detailed
and specific information on the habits of the users. This
information can be very personal in nature.
