IEEE IoT Vertical and Topical Summit
11-13 June 2018 – Anchorage, Alaska

Privacy and Security

The IoT poses a new challenge for security and privacy. The estimate is that the IoT world will cross 50 Billion devices sometime in the early 2020’s. Many of those will be critical to safety, individual well being, large-scale operations, and represent loss of significant value if disrupted. An important aspect of IoT is that solutions and applications are part of a complex eco-system and that end-end security and reliability depends on many parties. The Sessions will address the new threats that IoT enables, the approaches to dealing with them, and the emergence of basic principles for effectively dealing with security and privacy, as well as the education needed to create awareness and improve the public intuition about cyber-security.
