The Internet of Things (IoT) is now ubiquitous, but the analysis of IoT data is not…Yet.

Join Warren Kruse, Robert Fried, and Kenneth Oliver from Consilio for a discussion on the potential relevance of IoT data to different corporate or civil case scenarios, and the potential need for obtaining discovery from, for example, internet-connected cameras; home automation systems; smart speakers, TVs, and refrigerators, and wearables.

This discussion will also touch on aspects of the industrial realm such as the challenge of IoT data generated in factories, warehouses, and pipelines, among other settings.

  • What is IoT?
  • Consumer IoT
  • Wearables
  • Digital Assistants
  • Smart Home devices (thermostats, light bulbs, doorbells, refrigerators, e.g.)
  • Industrial IoT
  • Safety and maintenance monitoring
  • Supply Chain tracking and monitoring
  • Productivity tracking and monitoring
  • Unique IoT Challenges
  • Use in Civil cases
  • Preserving Data
  • Helping clients understand what IoT data they have
  • Who to send preservation request to?
  • How to preserve?
  • Collecting Data
  • How to collect and from whom?
  • Possession, Custody, and Control
  • Consumer IoT – who owns the data? How and where is it stored
  • Industrial IoT – cloud-based monitoring systems or manufacturer IoT or LEASED IoT equipment
  • Subpoenaing data from third parties
  • Different formats and potential need to convert the data for review

Assessing Accessibility, Relevance of IoT Data

  • Often less accessible, but also more ephemeral, more danger of spoliation
  • Is same data available from other, more easily accessible sources?
  • Is all IoT data relevant? Can it be “untwined” if it’s massive?
