What the Internet of Things means for consumer privacy discusses the findings of an Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) research programme, sponsored by ForgeRock, that explores the privacy concerns and priorities of global consumers stemming from the Internet of Things (IoT) and related technologies.
At the core of the research is a global survey of 1,629 consumers that The EIU conducted in October 2017. Respondents come from eight countries; Australia, China, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea, the UK and the US. They fall into six age groups ranging from 16 to over 65, and the sample is divided evenly among men and women.
Additional insights were obtained from in-depth interviews with experts on privacy in the digital era. Our thanks are due to the following individuals:
• Giulio Coraggio, partner, head of global IoT and gaming, DLA Piper • Amanda Long, director-general, Consumers International • Kathleen McGee, head, Bureau of Internet and Technology, Office of the Attorney-General of the State of New York
