The event will include a multi-dimensional program of technical research papers, presentations, panels, workshops, tutorials and industry forum on the latest technology developments and innovations in many fields and disciplines that drive the utility and vitality of IoT solutions and applications.
Security and Privacy Track
IoT applications and prospective solutions mandate consideration of a broad set of security and privacy requirements. The explosion in the number of connected devices poses a significant challenge, as does the diversity of end uses. This year’s World Forum will address the component and platform implications for IoT in the context of the full life cycle for security and privacy regimes. It will also address the many security architectures and approaches that have emerged from Government organizations around the world, from the Commercial Market space, and from the Research Community. Across the wide spectrum of use cases there is a need to appropriately balance security and privacy, and it is useful to think of classifications that distinguish the levels required.
