An information-sharing event on creating and implementing successful IoT security strategies within the Federal Government.

Panel: IoT Security: Are We Keeping Pace with the Threats?

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.

Join us for this thought leader discussion as topic experts explore the ‘art of the possible’ in IoT use cases in Federal space, but also what can and needs to be done to prevent IoT cyber-attacks like phishing, ransomware, and crypto mining. Where do we stand 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?
