With 25 Billion connected 'things' predicted to be in use by 2020, the Internet of Things (IoT) is continuing to gather momentum. Many are realising its transformational potential across a range of industries and sectors – energy, automotive, healthcare, local government services and manufacturing and many more.
For the benefits to be fully realised however, users of IoT products and services must be confident that it is secure. Concerns regarding privacy, data security and control interfaces are just some of the security challenges that will need to be addressed for the IoT to realise its full potential.
techUK's IoT Programme and Cyber Security Group are therefore hosting a workshop to discuss the risks associated with a connected world, how they can be overcome and how UK companies can take advantage of the opportunities the IoT presents.
