Securing Our Connected World: Security at the Intersection of 5G and IoT
December 11 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
As future 5G wireless networks become intelligent and IoT devices become ubiquitous, there are many security questions that industry, governments and now developers must answer.
Please join us for a dynamic panel discussion featuring executive leadership from Intel, T-Mobile and OasisWorks, Stormsensor where we will discuss the opportunities, obstacles, and path forward for smart cities and a connected world. Our panelists have firsthand experience in IOT technologies, platforms, end customer understanding which is sure to provoke a collaborative discussion amongst them and attendees. Will future 5G networks truly become the platform for industry adoption of IOT products and services?
Additionally, we will discuss how blockchain is helping to solve some of the security challenges posted by off-the-shelf IoT devices, and what industries and companies are leading the charge on trialing these new products.
