Practical IoT Security: In the Cloud and on the Things

Session Abstract:

Today, it seems everyone is talking about security in the IoT. Encryption. Network and API Security. Authentication. And it seems like there are a thousand more, but to be effective you’re going to need real, practical steps to protect your devices.

In this session, we’ll be using plain English to describe common security pitfalls in the Internet of Things and how to avoid them in your product. Whether you’re an engineer, the CEO, or somewhere in between, you’ll walk away with tangible, down-to-earth things you can do to protect your device and cloud.

We’ll be covering the basics between your “things” and the cloud:
* How to protect your device against infiltration
* Defending your web services in the cloud
* Architecting “Security from the start”
* Keeping the fleet safe, now and forever
