Draft IoT Legislation Increases Obligations on Contractors and Promotes Vulnerability Disclosure

The Internet of Things (IoT) Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2017, introduced August 1, 2017, by Sens. Mark Warner (D-VA), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Steve Daines (R-MT), seeks to improve the security of ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) devices by establishing requirements for IoT devices procured by the federal government. Several third parties contributed to it, including think tanks and security vendors. It does not appear that the private-sector suppliers of IoT devices or network operators were involved in the drafting.
