Title of Presentation

Secure Connections for a Smarter World


Driven by exponential innovation growth, the world is becoming smarter at an accelerated pace.  With billions of devices being connected, acting autonomously or semi-autonomously on behalf of their owners, IoT is transforming our society. The connected world, however, makes security a perpetual challenge in our daily life. Without proper security, large scale of IoT platform deployment can lead to catastrophes.  Effective security solutions must be reliable and easy to implement.  This is true for protecting simple IoT nodes at home as well as for shielding complex systems such as connected cars.  As an integral part of reliable security solutions, user’s awareness or attack detection plays a critical role.  It is indispensable in minimizing the potential damage in a case of security breach.
