Peter Yeoh, 'The Fourth Industrial Revolution: Technological Impact and Privacy and Data Security Issues' (2017) 38 Business Law Review, Issue 1, pp. 9–13


This article focuses on the Internet of Things (IoT) and its impact on privacy and data security for users. It examines the economic value of the IoT, its rapid growth, the technological challenges it faces, and why regulators are watching its development closely especially in relation to privacy and data security issues. The article argues for a less precautionary regulatory approach to enable the IoT to achieve its full potential for the benefit of economies across the world.
