SECURING THE FUTURE: IOT IS NOT ABOUT "THINGS," IT'S ABOUT DATA!
Pavan Singh, VP and Head of IoT at Covata, will be discussing how we should be thinking about data security in the world of IoT. The Internet of Things is dramatically transforming industries and business processes, and will even change the way we live our daily lives. With industry experts predicting anywhere between 20-50 billion connected devices by 2020, the question becomes - how are these devices and systems being connected? What kind of security is available today to ensure privacy and security? The data deluge becomes the next hurdle. Big data technologies are focusing on managing huge amounts of data, but the security and access controls remain the critical challenge. Using three industry case studies - connected cars, DevOps and healthcare - Pavan will discuss why a data centric approach to security is the only way we can truly harness the power of IoT, and protect our most precious asset, our data.
