About this event


By 2020 there will be an estimated 75 billion Internet connected devices forming the Internet of Things (IoT).  These devices will be all pervasive, entering our lives in:
  • Intelligent Buildings                           
  • Manufacturing
  • Automotive telematics
  • Retail
  • Smart Meters and Power Generation and Distribution
  • Logistics
  • Agriculture
  • Medical
and many more.

Are we ready for the profound changes that the IoT will bring?  Are we confident that these devices will always work as intended, and what happens if they become infected by malware planted by hackers, corporations or nation states (including our own)?  Do we know how much security protection these devices already have?  Does the general public care, or has the Facebook generation which has apparently given up all rights to privacy in the name of being able to tell their friends what they had for breakfast also decided that it doesn’t care whether their Internet-connected television spies on them?
 
The speaker will outline the dangers of insecure devices in the Internet of Things and look at potential solutions to overcome this.
