With more and more devices being connected daily, the Internet of Things is continuing to accelerate and is showing no signs of letting up, in fact, its just heating up.   But for every new connected product that is announced, there seems to be yet another report of a high profile security breach, effecting millions of users; compromising everything from personal data to allowing remote access and control of your connected systems to unauthorized parties. 

Security is a hot topic in IoT, and as the industry continues to gain traction, the concerns will only grow.  Join Ayla’s Chief Technology Officer, Adrian Caceres, Mike Krell, Analyst with Moor Insight & Strategy, and Nolan Mondrow, President of LockState in a panel discussion covering what security really means in IoT and how to successfully architect a secure connected product. 

What Attendees will learn:
