The IoT Tech Expo Global
The IoT Tech Expo Global in London, the world’s largest Internet of Things conference series, will bring together pioneers from around the globe for two days of top-level content and discussion across four co-located events delving deep into the worlds of IoT, Blockchain, Cyber Security & Cloud, and AI & Big Data. The conference will explore the latest innovations in the Internet of Things and cover its impact on many industries including Manufacturing, Transport, Supply Chain, Insurance, Logistics, Government, Energy and Automotive. Key topics examined will include edge computing, IoT connectivity solutions, industry 4.0 & 5.0, facilities management and buildings automation, smart meter & smart grids, building the connected supply chain, process automation, connected fleet, smart city infrastructure, asset monitoring and management, cloud, IoT data management and more.
The Industrial Internet Consortium will host the Business Outcomes of the IIoT track to face hot topics such as IIoT, Li-Fi, Blockchain, AI, Edge Computing, Digital Twin, and Enhanced Security in the Connected Age. Within this corridor, on April 26th, at 2.30 pm, Glenn Bates, Senior Commercial Engineer, Rockwell Automation, and Ton van den Berg, Sales Manager Belgium & France, Wibu-Systems, will present Secure Grip for PLCs on the Road to Enhanced Security in the Connected Age, a real-life use case from the industrial automation sector. Rockwell Automation has integrated Wibu-Systems’ CodeMeter technology into their Logix5000 range of Programmable Automation Controllers. This enables their customers to manage the valuable intellectual property of a control system in a secure and flexible manner without compromising productivity.
The history of digital assets protection, and in particular of software protection, started three decades ago. IoT developers must go through the same path and learn security best practices at an accelerated pace to safeguard software, source code, and sensitive data. Security for IoT devices is achieved by implementing secure boot, IP and integrity protection, and chain of trust. That’s exactly where CodeMeter’s product family fits in, with its interoperable approach across multiple platforms, with a broad lineup of industry grade hardware secure elements, with its acute propension towards software monetization.
