The Future of Privacy Forum has released a new paper called, "The Internet of Things and People with Disabilities: Exploring the Benefits, Challenges, and Privacy Tensions." It includes recommendations for approaches to incorporate privacy and accessibility by design. FPF CEO Jules Polonetsky, CIPP/US, said, "Internet of things devices in homes, cars and on our bodies can improve the quality of life for people with disabilities — if they are designed to be accessible and account for the sensitive nature of the data they collect. ... We expect this first-of-its-kind paper to inspire collaboration among advocates, academia, government, and industry to ‘bake in’ privacy and accessibility from the start of the design process."
