Enabling IoT Security

Government & Public Policy


Date & Time

Wednesday, 01 Mar 2017

Hall 4 Auditorium 2


A significant amount of IoT projects do not make it past the prototype stage due to security concerns. Investment is increasing to meet this challenge and secure not only active IoT solutions, but future use-cases. The GSMA estimates that worldwide IoT security will increase by 73% by 2019 to US$195 million to address this gap. Security is at the heart of enabling IoT. The Enabling IoT Security session will explore best practice security strategies for IoT deployments, discuss the impact of security on the different layers and explore the opportunities for cross-industry consensus on security for devices, sensors and users alike.
