Security & consumer IoT : an oxymoron?
08/31/2017 @ 18:30 - 20:30| Free
As the number of devices connected to the Internet grows exponentially, so do the vulnerabilities and security challenges they create. From misuse of sensitive data without consent, to DDoS attacks – risks are plentiful and complex to prevent.
What are the main or underestimated threats arising from a rapidly evolving consumer IoT landscape? What skills, partners or approach do companies need to build secure products and services? How can startups, corporates, consumers, government and law respectively improve the situation? Who should carry the responsibility, liability, and cost to ensure security of the IoT?
This panel brings together experts from complementary perspectives to explore the risks really at stake, and how different stakeholders groups can and should take action.
