'Don't panic about IoT Security, new technology will sort it out' - Security & Defence SIG event - London

Start date/time :  13:30 28th September 2016
End date/time :  17:30 28th September 2016
Venue :  Olswang LLP, 90 High Holborn, London W1V 6XX

The Internet of Things (IoT) brings together large amounts of data about people. The IoT could become a hackers playground with big, valuable data sets available in one place. This context shapes the debate and discussion at our insightful half day event hosted by Olswang at its London offices. Speakers include Professor Anthony Finkelstein of National Security, Adrian Winkles of Anglia Ruskin University, Laurence Kalman of Olswang, Max Heinemeyer of Darktrace and Derek McAuley of University of Nottingham.



This half day conference hosted by Olswang will explore the ways in which new technologies can be applied to manage the risks inherent in any data collection project. We will explore the potential dystopian outcomes of the IoT, and look at ways in which technologies like artificial intelligence, block chains, quantum key distribution will keep our future safe.

Our SIG champions will set the scene on a variety of tension points within the IoT sector and speakers will be invited to share their expertise surrounding IoT security. From hacking scandals, IoT privacy to new technology and government regulation, this event will encourage lively discussion with audience members. 

Speakers confirmed so far include:

The Security & Defence SIG is championed by Paul Tindall of Sepura, Derek Long of Cambridge Consultants & Tim Phipps.
