Data & Security

“As organizations step into IoT, they must understand the symbiotic relationship between it and big data. For IoT deployments to really make an impact, they must provide some sort of useful tool or service, while also collecting relevant data.” – ZDNet

Data has been described as the glue that holds the Internet of Things together. With a seemingly limitless numbers of connections, the Big Data generated has potential to streamline business processes, improve profit margins, and assist in customer retention and cost reduction. In these sessions we review how businesses can manage IoT generated Big Data for intelligent decision making. This track will delve into both consumer and business concerns over security which have arisen from the increasing connectivity brought about by IoT. With the application of IoT to an infinite number of devices, and the acceleration of the market, we will be exploring the new areas of technology which are responding to these perceived threats.  


Data & Security: Chair’s welcome and opening remarks


Keynote: Data is everything

  • Where is IoT data making an impact?
  • Optimising the benefits of embedded sensor technology
  • Uncovering new economic structures made available by access to intelligent data
  • Consequences for businesses and consumers


Keynote Panel: IoT data analytics for intelligent decision making

  • Identifying target-rich, high-value data that can be used to generate business intelligence
  • Using cloud analytics platforms to derive value from IoT data
  • Discussing the barriers to widespread IoT / Big Data value delivery and how these might be overcome
  • Data in practice – examples of how IoT data is creating business efficiencies and revolutionising working practices



Networking Break


Utilising the IoT for mass data collection and sharing

  • How the Met Office is harnessing the potential of the IoT and open data
  • Building data infrastructure that allows for interoperability
  • Allaying security concerns to encourage data sharing
  • Overcoming the scientific challenges of IoT data quality
  • Vision for the future


IoT in the heavy industries: Been there, done that, got the (wearable) T-shirt

  • Sensor-driven business processes have been around for decades in Oil & Gas, biopharma, CPG – so what’s new under the IoT agenda
  • The major challenges in this domain are the processing of sensor data at scale, and placing it in a business context for timely impact
  • Data silos have become well-established and impede enterprise agility – the IoT agenda can help change this culture
  • Beyond the hype, there are new approaches within IoT that should be assessed by longstanding users of sensor data
  • I will share some experiences from projects in this space and explain what works (and what doesn’t work so well!)

Orange’s vision and experience’s within IoT

  • More details to follow


Panel: Tackling data security and privacy challenges of the IoT

Dragan Pendić

Head of Digital and Data Trust


Associated Talks:

View Full Info

  • Understanding the unique challenges of security for the IoT, and preparing for the next evolutions of the technologies involve
  • Addressing the risks of big data – greater volume of sensitive data creating a greater risk of data and identity theft, device manipulation, data falsification, IP theft and server/network manipulation etc.
  • Enabling data security in IoT – protecting integrity, authenticity and confidentiality of information
  • Exploring issues of privacy – to what extent users require privacy, and how it can be maintained whilst still making data useful

Networking Break


Designed for Security – IoT Big Data Modelling

  • Challenges in IoT and security, privacy
  • Best practices of IoT Big Data Modelling
  • Latest development in Guaranteed Privacy and Secure MPC (multi-party computing)


Cyber security challenges when moving from Internet to Internet of Things

The future Internet will be an IPv6 network interconnecting traditional computers and a large number of smart objects or networks. This Internet of Things (IoT) will be the foundation of many services and our daily life will depend on its availability and reliable operations. Therefore, among many other issues, the challenge of implementing secure communication in the IoT must be addressed.  This talk will discuss these challenges and address solutions to overcome them.
