Faculty: Faculty of Law

Educational Programme: Information Technology and Intellectual Property Law (Master)

Final Grade: 7

Year of Graduation: 2017

In this paper, we highlight some of the issues related to Internet of Things technologies and wearable devices. In particular, issues related to privacy and information security are addressed. The work is based on the analysis of existing approaches to the regulation of innovations in the field of the Internet of things, it is proposed to implement regulation, guided by a more creative and flexible approach. Ex ante (proactive or preventive) regulation is often extremely inefficient, and even to some extent dangerous. Preventive regulation, based on assumptions about future damage that may never occur, is likely to occur through a reduction in innovation and the possibility of their growth. If necessary, corrective measures taken ex post, to eliminate serious damage, will generally be more reasonable. Using a balanced, multi-level approach to issues of privacy and security will ensure the protection of important values without disrupting economic and social innovations that can stem from the Internet of things and wearable technologies.
