IoT Security: Will the Internet of Things be secure enough to run your life?

Brought to you by CW (Cambridge Wireless)

Successful security will make or break the Internet of Things. Even at this early stage serious lapses in security lead many to question if the IoT can be trusted, or if it ever will be.

Registration for this event is now closed.

About the event

The proliferation of Internet of Things devices in homes, cars, factories and lives will revolutionise many aspects of modern life, but the volume deployment of devices, the collection of valuable data, the use of processes and the delivery of business models are all at risk if reputations are lost or laws are broken. How can we guarantee that the IoT will be up to the task of controlling machines, opening valves, changing traffic lights or driving cars without driving costs too high? Would you trust the internet to lock your doors?

The Software/Open Source SIG is championed by John Bechtel, Badger Pass, David Berry, PTC, Phillip Burr, ARM and David Roberts, Jabooh Software Services.
