The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next step in the evolution of wireless networks. Analysts predict the IoT will double in size to nearly 50 billion devices by 2020, comprising a $1.7 trillion market. One of the greatest opportunities still lies ahead in the form of the "smart home."
This moderated panel discussion brings together the authors of the issue brief – Joshua Corman, Founder of I Am The Cavalry; Greg Lindsay, Nonresident Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council and Senior Fellow at the New Cities Foundation; and Beau Woods, Deputy Director of the Council's Cyber Statecraft Initiative – to explore the opportunities and risks of networked smart homes. It also offers recommendations for maximizing their value for homeowners while minimizing consumers' concerns, which may prevent or delay the smart home segment from achieving its market potential.
