Date & Time

3:00 pm - 4:30 pm


Moscone South, Esplanade level, Auditorium 3


IT analyst forecasts are unable to keep pace with the dramatic rise in cybercrime, the ransomware epidemic, the refocusing of malware from PCs and laptops to smartphones and mobile devices, the deployment of billions of under-protected Internet of Things (IoT) devices, the legions of hackers-for-hire, and the more sophisticated cyber-attacks launching at businesses, governments, educational institutions, and consumers globally according to the Cybersecurity Market Report. The GSMA estimates that worldwide IoT security will increase by 73% by 2019 to US$195 million to address this gap. Security is at the heart of enabling IoT. But where are the weaknesses and how can the industry ensure a safe ecosystem for all devices? This session will feature hackers and heroes, demonstrations and case studies. We will explore the cyber threats facing America today, and how companies are making changes based on these. Leading experts will discuss the challenges as well as the responsibilities and measures that need to be taken in data protection and technological innovation on how to minimize exposure to cyber security threats.
