Event Details

This is an informal roundtable discussion. To get the conversation going, "discussion catalysts" will give brief, but provocative, opening remarks. Our goal is to understand better how different governments view the Internet of Things, what opportunities they see, and what policies under consideration are needed to address potential challenges, both to market opportunities and industry protections. This should be a wide-ranging conversation covering everything from Mirai botnets to 5G to the Internet of Toys and much more. Please bring your ideas and opinions on the opportunities and challenges around these emerging technology issues.

"Discussion catalysts":

John Godfrey, SVP, Public Policy, Samsung Electronics America

Andrea Glorioso, Counselor (Digital Economy/Cyber), Delegation of the European Union to the U.S.

Melissa Glidden Tye, Vice President, Public Policy, Verizon

Anderson Heiman, Senior Advisor for Technology and Trade, Senator Ron Wyden's office

Andrew Haire, consultant, former telecom regulator of Singapore, and head of the IIC's US chapter
