Partner Daniel Pepper is quoted in an article published on Jan. 4, 2021, by Bloomberg News. The article, “Cyber Standards for Connected Devices Leverage Federal Purchases,” reports on how a new law setting cybersecurity standards for Internet of Things (IoT) devices purchased by federal agencies could impact the industry.

“The challenge, I think, for the device manufacturers is being able to comply with these obligations when producing really inexpensive devices,” Pepper said. “There will be a cost increase.”
