The Internet of Things (IoT) – the network of physical objects that are capable of sensing or acting on their environment and communicating with each other, other machines or computers – is changing the way we interact with and understand the world around us.
The IoT collects and processes vast quantities of data, providing its users with insights that were hitherto impossible or prohibitively expensive to obtain. The roll-out of 5G cellular networks feature a number of exciting innovations – their roll out will deliver higher-speed connectivity, lower latency and increased capacity, and will drive a new wave of connected devices.
As we become more dependent on data, so too must we carefully consider matters of system governance, data protection, cyber-security, and data ethics. Our diverse team is comprised of lawyers, data protection advisors, computer and data scientists, cyber security experts and academics – they are well-placed to advise on legal, regulatory, strategic and technical aspects of IoT-enabled projects.
We advise a broad range of clients, from early stage businesses through to public sector organisations. Our best-in-class technical experts have also advised HM Government in the UK on its 5G Testbed and Trials programmes and participated in Parliamentary briefings regarding 5G innovation.
