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.

As we move into an increasingly connected world, the currency of the digital age is becoming the data that is communicated between our devices. How this data is collected, used, and – importantly – secured is now a vital part of our world. This talk will discuss how and why this data has become so important, and how it is being increasingly used in novel ways to both enhance and change our lives. However, as data becomes more valuable it is also being targeted by criminals – both the data itself and the methods of collection. The speaker will discuss both the rise of this trend across the world, as well as how companies such as UL are looking to fight the problem and ensure our data is safe.

Battery-life and Performance Analysis of Communication and Security for Things of the IoT

Key characteristics of an IoT device are that it connects to the Internet and (should) implement some form of security. That connectivity and security have an associated performance and energy cost – a critical design factor when it comes to optimizing battery life and responsiveness. The system designer must carefully select the microcontroller, security functions, radio, and protocol stack to ensure optimal conditions based on the application’s requirements. This presentation will describe an industry-approved methodology for measuring performance and energy consumption of microcontrollers, security functions, radios, and protocol stacks as they communicate with the outside world.

  • 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
