About the session:

Why IoT Security is so Critical
Digitally connected devices are encroaching on every aspect of our lives, our homes, cars, offices, even our bodies. In fact, according BusinessInsider, we are headed to a world of 24 billion IoT devices by 2020. But with more connected devices comes more vulnerabilities, making the need to protect company IP, customer data and operational infrastructure more urgent than ever before. With IoT projects, if security is not prioritized, the business opportunity will be undermined. In this session, learn how to make security the core of the IoT value proposition, from integrating security into the deployment process to educating consumers and staff.

"This is an excellent opportunity for us to represent the security concerns from the Industrial Internet of Things," said Myer. "Securing our nation's mission-critical power, oil and gas, chemical and manufacturing facilities is becoming a high priority. We'll discuss the options to address these concerns."
