  • Session Number:  MDCS9:


The growth of IoT is outpacing the ability for IT departments to establish sufficient security controls. Each new IoT connected device potentially creates a new point of vulnerability. In this presentation, Chris Crosby, CEO, Compass Datacenters, will identify and discuss the problems associated with current networks in relation to the IoT. He will also present the framework for planning for IoT implementation from a security perspective, as well as discussing the new emerging security model that can enable IT to maintain network security while increasing the scope of IT implementations.

Learning Objectives

1. The shortcomings of existing networks in IoT implementation 
2. The state of current security offerings 
3. The security questions that must be addressed prior to implementing IoT applications and the new model for network security
