Giving the Internet an Identity


The Internet of Things is a radical game changer. With the number of new devices being linked to networks growing larger every day, so too are the potential dangers. With great change comes great regulation, but are policy makers and industry leaders equipped with the necessary data and risk management skills needed to properly guide us safely into this new world? Join ISSA as we examine the myths, realities, promises and dangers of this rapidly emerging information security frontier.
