In the new age of the IoT, innovative and nontraditional products are making their way into consumers' hands with increasing regularity.   In fact, IoT products are touching every aspect of our lives, resulting in blurred lines amongst agencies' cross-jurisdictional reach. As a result, agencies must balance desires not to over-regulate with the competing desires to make sure consumers are somehow protected when they engage with non-traditional products. In this session, a panel of senior government regulators will discuss how the government approaches regulating emerging technology products from a risk and regulatory perspective. Additionally, the panelists will explore how they can and do unite to best effectuate a shared mission of protecting consumers and how they are adapting as it becomes easier for consumers to obtain innovative and cross-functioning products.
