Session 1: Securing a Better Future

With 25 billion connected devices by 2025, the risk of cybersecurity breaches, leaked customer data, destroyed reputations and costly remediation is increasing exponentially. Without security, the Internet of Things will cease to exist. IoT companies must avoid short cuts to guarantee end-to-end security and allow the IoT market to scale to create a connected, secure, intelligent and sustainable future.

Join leading industry experts to discover:

  • Live hack: witness how easily devices can be compromised if not secured properly
  • IoT security best practices and assessment frameworks
  • IoT security certification and recent regulatory developments in the EU and US

 

Session 2: Creating a Better Future with Drones

Serving numerous industries and use cases, drones are a rapidly emerging sector within the IoT. Their versatile application range and access to real-time data will make them valued additions to modern life, helping to make cities smarter to improve the quality of life for citizens.

Join leading industry experts to discover:

  • New connected commercial drone opportunities
  • New challenges for the drone industry and how to address them
  • Network coverage and secure communication enabled by mobile operators
  • SIM card capabilities to enhance safety and security
