The Internet of Things (IoT) is creating unprecedented opportunities and challenges – launching groundbreaking collaboration among disparate industries and generating insightful data from uncommon sources.

The Connected Car is a prime example of the benefits and issues posed by IoT. In putting the entertainment, communications, personal service and automobile industries under one hood, the Connected Car promises an exciting era of synergy and growth. To get there will require protecting complex technologies, sharing communications spectrum, ensuring consumer privacy and preventing cybersecurity breaches.

Please join BakerHostetler’s Communications Industry Team as we bring together clients, regulators and our own professionals to discuss what the connected car can teach us about the risks and rewards of IoT technologies. Our knowledgeable panelists include:

  • Danielle Piñeres - Associate General Counsel, NCTA

  • Katie McInnis - Policy Counsel, Consumers Union
  • Ari Q. Fitzgerald - Partner, Hogan Lovells
  • Hussein Akhavannik - Partner, BakerHostetler

Our moderators, Gary Lutzker and Chad Rutkowski, will guide the conversation as we examine the technical, legal and regulatory challenges of implementing IoT technologies in automotive applications and highlight where those themes may have a similar impact across a broad range of companies in other industries. Join us in Washington D.C., as we explore the connected car revolution.
