FOSI Briefs the Hill on Connected Families

  • 421 Cannon House Office Building (map)

You are invited to a Family Online Safety Institute briefing on the impact of the Internet of Things on families, including important findings from FOSI's research project. The event, featuring Congressman Ted W. Lieu (CA- 33), will discuss the potential risks, harms and rewards that our increasingly connected homes, devices and children’s toys bring.

What responsibilities does industry have to better communicate how our data is stored, used and distributed? What roles do government and regulators have in overseeing this vast expansion of the Internet of Things into our homes? And how confident are parents in monitoring their children’s connected devices and toys?
