IoT Security, Drones – Creating a Connected and Secure Future
- Fira Gran Via
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
