It’s time to think outside the box of familiar sources of electronically stored information (ESI). Our devices are tracking us, and the data they collect is making its way into the courtroom. Discovery and smart technology was the topic of “The Connected World: A Lawyer’s Guide to the Internet of Things,” the latest CLE from the E-Discovery, Information Governance and Cybersecurity Section of the IndyBar.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of devices that collect, send and receive data using the Internet. It includes smart appliances, wearable devices, vehicle electronics, HVAC systems and more. Devices may be connected to each other or to a phone or computer that monitors activity, stores data and controls settings.
In the legal arena, the IoT data pioneer is law enforcement. There are already a number of criminal cases that turned on data from connected devices.
