Join industry, privacy and security leaders at this key event to share, shape and develop security, privacy & sustainability best practices.
The Internet of Things (IoT) moniker is being applied to 1000’s of devices, offering increased utility, functionality and other consumer and business benefits. In this rapid race to bring products to market, all too many lack basic security protocols, privacy considerations and related safeguards. While it is recognized there is no “perfect security” or "absolute privacy", the lack of standards and controls increases the risk of exploits, data breaches and abusive data use policies to consumers and businesses worldwide.
Speakers will share latest security and privacy research evaluating the top IoT devicesand how they compare to other key sectors. Attend to learn who made the Online Trust Honor Roll and the leading causes for others to fail.
