Through informative conference tracks, an IoT Exhibition floor, case studies, special events, networking and more you will understand how the Internet of Things (IoT) will be the driving forces behind improving efficiencies, driving revenue opportunities and solving business problems across multiple industries and in nearly all business functional areas.
TCG member and work group chair Steve Hanna, Infineon, will speak in a session Wednesday, January 24, 2018, at 3:00 p.m. – 3:55 p.m. ET in a session Avoiding the IoT Zombie Apocalypse. Hanna’s session will examine the business and technical implications of new attacks like the CIA’s CherryBlossom toolkit and Mirai. These toolkits go after IoT devices, routers, and gateways. They use sophisticated techniques to compromise these systems, turn them into zombies, and enslave them into botnet armies that are rented out for DDoS attacks. Thus even mighty giants like Twitter and Netflix have been laid low. We would talk about the new practices that use hardware security to protect the next generation of IoT devices and routers against such attacks. How can IoT avoid being part of the problem?
You can also join Steve at The Birds of a Feather Security Q & A on Thursday, January 25, 2018, at 9:00 a.m. ET. This session will be an open forum to discuss how everyone can improve their cyber security plans. We have gathered some of our best thought leaders into the room to answer any questions attendees have about their unique situations.
