Title: Managing the legal risk of IoT projects
Presenter: Ashley Kelso, Senior Associate, AustraLaw
What you will learn:
- Practical strategies for reducing and resolving disputes on IoT projects
- Key legal risks to address throughout the IoT project lifecycle
- Effective contract management using IoT technology
- Practical lessons from actual IoT litigation

Description: Internet of Things (IoT) projects are a complex multiparty undertaking, requiring the cooperation of asset owners, technology providers, consultants, communication service providers, and a range of other stakeholders. Adding to this, the securing of legal rights for the use and maintenance of the ICT systems is critical to the ongoing operation of these projects.
Successful delivery and operation of these assets requires effective communication, a sound understanding of the legal landscape, and practical systems and procedures to secure the strength of your legal position if things escalate.
This webinar will take a practical approach, discussing the various perspectives of the stakeholders and the strategies to promote successful project delivery. Lessons will be drawn from past cases to illustrate how to do it, and how not to do it.
