Concerns about IoT and supporting Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) and infrastructure have led to significant enacted legislation and regulations and plans to enact further measures. While jurisdictions may differ in their approaches and underlying philosophies the impacts are nevertheless world-wide, driven by the practical response of businesses to market dynamics, market size, and the manifestation of legislation in the standards and practices affecting IoT.
