Attorney Lamoureux’s presentation will begin at 11:15 a.m. His remarks will include defining the Internet of Things or “IoT” and how this interconnectedness of objects, devices, software, and sensors impacts consumers, the courts, and cases. Attending the conference will be judges and judicial officers of the state’s Supreme Court, Superior Court, District Court, Family Court, Workers’ Compensation Court, and the Traffic Tribunal.
“The onslaught of new technology drives new challenges for individuals and the courts, particularly in the area of data collection and privacy issues,” said Attorney Lamoureux. “Whether we are aware of it or not, the Internet of Things is already impacting consumers, our privacy as individuals, and how criminal and civil court cases are playing out across America. I am honored to address the prestigious members of the judiciary and to share my knowledge and insight on this fast evolving phenomena that has changed our society.”
