Big Data, connected devices and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications making up the "internet of things" (IoT) create huge potential efficiencies and new opportunities for business in every sector. It promises a "fourth industrial revolution" and is already making great strides in sectors such as oil and gas, manufacturer, healthcare and many more.

Given its rapidly accelerating global significance, there will be few General Counsel, private practice lawyers, regulators, corporate board members or decision-makers who have not already been asked questions about the risks and opportunities of IoT.  

  • So how does IoT work?  What are the opportunities? 
  • What are the cyber security and data protection issues that need to be taken into consideration?
  • Where are the legal and regulatory risks? 
  • Who regulates the IoT?
  • How will IoT affect investment decisions and the structure of deals, joint ventures and corporate acquisitions? 

Answering any of those questions requires both a broad overview of extremely diverse factors, anddetailed consideration of the existing legal and regulatory provisions around the world.

Asia Legal Business (ALB) presents an intensive one-day workshop that equips you with the knowledge to ask the right questions, to analyse and to advise on the risks and opportunities that IoT will bring to your jurisdiction, and to your sector.  It is carefully structured to allow you to gain a firm understanding of IoT and  the legal and business issues that flow from it. 

Target Audience

  • Senior in-house counsels/general counsels
  • Private practice lawyers
  • Chief Technology Officer (CTO)

  • Make a crucial and positive contribution to the future of your business by knowing how to address the legal requirements that come with adopting IoT solutions (particularly those related to contractual relationships).
