Internet Infrastructure and Governance

The Internet of Things

Further complicating the Internet governance field is the dawn of the Internet of Things. A continuous and interconnected network of machine and human data is being produced at an unprecedented rate, too fast even for computers to track and log it all.

The data travelling over these networks, the people connected to them, and the infrastructure itself is all at risk if security standards, interoperable protocols and best practices are not maintained.

Every single aspect of human life – from shopping to voting, transportation to healthcare, socialising to political organising - is being affected by the Internet and the move toward digitising everything.

The real value that the Internet of Things creates is at the intersection of gathering data and leveraging it. We believe that the key technologies and policies are just beginning to emerge.
