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.

Abstract: IoT is a wonderful promise, but still in its infancy. If connectivity to the “Internet” is pretty much here, interconnectivity and interoperability is not. We are unveiling the work that has been done in Samsung over the past three years in order to offer an original solution to break the silos in which our “Things” still live and to provide really useful services and applications to end users .

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
