IoT Cloud Security Hands-on Workshop

Description: Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of Everything (IoE) are commonly referred to have small and always-connected devices sending data to backend cloud-based applications.  By 2025, there will be more than 25 billion IoT devices in the world. It’s a vast opportunity but it also brings vast risk. More connected devices mean more attack vectors and more possibilities for attackers to infiltrate systems, exfiltrate sensitive data and disrupt potentially critical systems.  IoT security has now become an issue of high concern, even at the federal government level.

In this hands-on workshop, we will provide step-by-step guide how to build trust (trusted identities, trusted data, trusted connectivity, and privacy and confidentiality) in IoT.
