Today, when we turn on the news, it becomes more and more apparent that the world is changing. Mobile technology and the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) are changing the way we live and interact. There are billions of mobile devices such as phones, tablets, GPS units and watches in use today. Whether it is farmers in Africa, or vacationers on the ski slopes, people use their devices to get from A to B.

Just as mobile and wearable technology are central to our day-to-day movements, tasks and actions, so too is it for those who break the law and seek to do us harm. The many new types of data, and the growing volume of data, can be accessed by law enforcement when needed, while protecting the privacy of citizens. The key for society and for policy makers, is to strike the appropriate balance.
