IoT and Cybersecurity (Joint Emerging Tech & Cyber COI meeting)
Featured Topic: IoT and Cybersecurity: A Discussion
Join the Emerging Technology and Cybersecurity COI for a joint meeting on the threats to IoT and the challenges in providing security to address them. At the meeting, we will have panelists from Cisco Talos, GW, and NIST to discuss threats, considerations, and best practices to secure IoT environments.
The rapid adoption, expansion, and use of Internet of Things devices continues to accelerate each year so that more and more internet connected devices will be online. As each of these devices expand the reach of our networks they create opportunities for bad actors to threaten our networks. Earlier this year, the bipartisan legislation "Cybersecurity Improvement Act 2019" was introduced to leverage Federal Government procurement power to encourage increased cybersecurity for Internet of Things devices, and for other purposes.
At the meeting, also hear about latest initiatives from both COIs and how you can be involved.
More information about the program and panelists will be available soon.
