by Parks Associates | May. 1, 2019

Addressing consumer privacy and security concerns is a key issue for the industry and Parks Associates At the 23rd-annual CONNECTIONS: The Premier Connected Home Conference, Parks Associates and key industry leaders will explore new opportunities for service providers as well as current attitudes on data privacy. Sponsored by F-Secure, the opening session at CONNECTIONS, “Service Providers: Defining New Roles in the Smart Home,” will be held on Tuesday, May 21 at 3:00 PM and will address opportunities for service providers in the smart home space to capitalize on consumer need.
