General Session Presentation: Secure the City, Connected Drives Risk – Ideal Solutions and Strategies to Prepare

Moderator: Nadine Manjaro, CEO of Beyond M2M Communications

Speakers: Preetham Naik - Director of IoT Security Solutions at Subex | Melissa Strauss - Regional Director at Darktrace | Herb Mooney - IoT Systems Engineer at Inseego | Bill Pugh,  Managing Partner, Smart Connections Consulting LLC

Description: One of the most discussed topics in IoT today is how to best protect, secure, and plan for the unknown including breaches, malicious network attacks, securing the physical systems, access control and monitoring, protecting assets, and having a post disaster and recovery plan in place in case of a security or hacking incident. Some of the most precious infrastructure and assets (fleets) are the part of the near-term solutions being rolled out within cities, and as such we as an industry need to continue to explore IoT security solutions to prepare, plan, and recover. Security at the device or equipment level to the IT/IoT network includes many stakeholders including the manufacturers, distributors, agencies/departments, IT teams, city leaders, technology vendors, and others. Our team of panelists will explore these topics, as well as provide best-in-class security services, solutions, and managed services to support in securing infrastructure. In addition topics such as blockchain, artificial intelligence, botnets, data security, identity/access control and monitoring, threat detection, risk management, and others will be explored during this session.
