Nick Merker Quoted in Bloomberg Law: "Connected Device Makers Face California, Oregon Security Laws"

Nick MerkerIce Miller LLP partner Nick Merker was quoted in the Bloomberg Law article, "Connected Device Makers Face California, Oregon Security Laws."

The article included: 

Internet of things security is a growing concern as the number of connected devices increases. The International Data Corporation estimates that 41.6 billion internet of things devices could be operating by 2025.

“Some companies are rushing to get devices out into the wild and they haven’t thought about security, and it’s created this massive risk that’s been exploding in recent years,” Nicholas Merker, an Indianapolis, Ind.-based attorney who co-chairs Ice Miller LLP’s data security and privacy practice, said.

The laws include different definitions for connected devices. California’s law applies to any device or object that connects directly or indirectly to the internet and is assigned an internet protocol or Bluetooth address. The Oregon law similarly covers devices or objects with those requirements, but only those that are used “primarily for personal, family, or household purposes.”
