We’ve placed this event as a must-attend for those working an ICT/SCADA-ICS environment, and especially those working with IoT. This is one of the largest events of its kind in Europe and the organizers have done a fantastic job recruiting some of the industry’s best speakers on their subjects. Let us know if you have attended before or plan to and we will publish your review on this page.
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Thursday, February 20th 2020, or created by us.
In the course of the growing number and rapid development of Industrial IoT applications throughout all manufacturing industries, an immensely increased use of smart, connected devices is constantly changing the IT/OT systems of traditional plants.
Along with the enablement of higher productivity and efficiency, reducing production costs and new platform-based business models, this development has a flipside. Where businesses are demanding real-time access to operational data, industrial systems — once secure and isolated — are becoming increasingly integrated with corporate networks, sometimes on commercial off-the-shelf platforms. This connectivity, brought by the IIoT, does not only create benefits but exposes the ICS and other operational technology to hacktivism, external attacks, employee sabotage and other security risks that previously affected only corporate Information Technology (IT).
The Security of Things World will provide the opportunities, strategies, and use and business cases of implementing the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) security solutions in the manufacturing and engineering industries. The event will gather more than 100 cybersecurity, IIoT Security, IT & OT security practitioners and decision-makers to evaluate and discuss the security risks in the context of IIoT, to create insights into new technologies and best practice of securing smart, assembly lines, and connected plants to progress their IIoT Security function.
