The Internet of Things (IoT) is taking the world by storm. The millions of connected sensors and smart devices that are being deployed on a daily basis in homes, offices, cities and even on our persons are creating unprecedented opportunities in cutting costs, reducing energy consumption, improving efficiency and customer services, and better understanding how we interact with our environment.  The IoT, hailed as one of the biggest breakthroughs in the history of the tech industry, will soon be an inherent part of every aspect of our lives, from retail shops to hotels, to cars and airplanes and practically everything we interact with.   However, this increased connectivity also presents increased cyber security challenges.

IoT Definition, Standards, IT to IoT Nexus panel will include NIST, NSA, Army Network Cross Functional Team, Industry & Health Care executives.  The Internet of Things (IoT) — a universe of connected things providing key physical data and further processing of that data in the cloud to deliver business insights— presents a huge opportunity for many players in all businesses and industries . Many companies are organizing themselves to focus on IoT and the connectivity of their future products and services. For the IoT industry to thrive there are three categories of challenges to overcome: technology, business and society.  This panel will discuss IoT from the customers and regulators perspective including Privacy, Regulatory, Connectivity, and Security Standards and striking the right balance of security and utility.
