Can Privacy Coexist with the Internet of Things?

I recently had the opportunity to author an article for CMSWire about the potential conflicts between privacy and the Internet of Things (IoT).

We are seeing a massive shift where the number of things connected to the Internet surpass the number of people. Today, billions of these devices such as wearables, cars, and appliances are constantly transmitting consumer data through the internet.

But when this data is collected, how is it stored? How is it protected, and how is it being used?

As the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) considers how to regulate and enforce ethical use of information, consumers may need to step in and help companies make technology decisions.

With the vast amounts of personal consumer data being collected, it will be critical to create a new privacy framework to ensure we can stay as private as possible while still using new technology.
