Panel: Expanding IOT through Emerging Technology

Connected devices are making their steadily increasing presence within the Federal government, helping with both mission delivery and citizen interaction. However, these smart cars, smart medical devices, even smart cities – represent brand new targets for hackers, requiring us to secure the many components in the IoT ecosystem: from sensors, industrial IoT devices and their interfaces; networks and clouds; to sophisticated software applications. 

Listen in as thought leaders discuss the ‘art of the possible’ in IoT use cases within the Federal space, but also what can and needs to be done to further IOT through emerging technology. Where do these topic experts see the future of IOT going? What emerging technologies will help it get there? How will emerging technologies help with creating and complying with IoT security regulations and standardization? What are some lessons learned and success stories to be shared from successful IoT security strategies?
