With the House and Senate returning to Washington in September, two recently-introduced Senate bills seek to address perceived vulnerabilities in the security of Internet of Things (IoT) devices sold to the federal government and medical devices which regularly connect to the Internet.
Among the key takeaways in the legislation:
- Legislation covers both products sold to the federal government and medical devices;
- Legislation addresses “life of device” obligations of IoT device manufacturers;
- Disclosure and Certification Requirements could create additional liability for manufacturers of Internet of Things devices.
