Taking place virtually from the Eindhoven University of Technology, this Dutch-virtual event looks pretty awesome. If you work and aspect IoT, especially with a cybersecurity-remit, then we’d certainly encourage you to get yourself in front of your machine for this event. <p lang=”nl”>Dit virtueel Nederlandse evenement vindt plaats vanaf de Technische Universiteit Eindhoven en ziet er best gaaf uit.</p>
Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Wednesday, September 23rd 2020, or created by us.
The digitization of our society and our economy has led to a dependency on information and communication technologies and thus to serious risks related to our cybersecurity. Until recently risks were, in general, restricted to information security, network security, and application security ensuring the confidentiality, the availability, and the integrity of data, but with the Internet-of-Things, we are seamlessly connecting the cyber and the physical worlds extending the risk area to safety requiring a broader perspective on security.
Internet-of-Things is turning out to be one of the weakest spots in our infrastructure. With billions and in the near future potentially trillions of devices, the security risks are growing at great rates. Our economic and societal forces are creating a perfect storm, a pervasive infrastructure of trillions of Internet-of-Things devices which on one hand will oversee our lives and economy, and on the other hand, will be completely unmanageable from a security perspective.
We are at a watershed moment in history and unless we take action immediately, we run the risk of being overcome by technology that will fundamentally and irreversibly undermine our cybersecurity and our safety. It is not just a matter of achieving an acceleration of technological innovations, it is actually a matter of achieving a transformative change in society.
During the INTERSCT. Conference on Cyber Security of Internet-of-Things on 14 and 15 October 2020 (both days from 12:30 until 17:30 CET), a series of inspirational speakers, panelists, and moderators from industry, academia, government, and civil society will share their insights with you on (aspects of) the various (technological) “challenges” we are faced with today and we will be faced with in the future as well as (directions for) “solutions” for our journey “Towards an Internet of Secure Things”.
Speakers include Allan Friedman, Nelly Ghaoui, Sandro Etalle, Herbert Bos, and many more.
