President Trump is slated to issue two Executive Orders this week which may relate to the ability of the nation to defend itself (and its critical infrastructure) from potential cyberattacks.  The first is the President’s Executive order on cybersecurity.  The second is the Executive Order on Regulatio.  It may be that these orders work contrary to each other in practice.  We will have to wait and see.

For the Internet of Things (IoT) to be useful, some sensing device has to collect data, and transmit that data over the Internet (typically) to a cloud server (typically) that will store and analyze that data and allow the user to see that data, and/or use the data to effect some change in the device or user behavior.  That’s a simplified and over broad description of the IoT.

If a tree falls in the forest and there is nobody there to hear it, does it make a sound?? If a company has a data security event exposing sensitive data, but nobody is harmed by the exposure, is it a violation of the law?  A recent case from a federal appeals court in Atlanta LabMD v. FTC. suggests not.
