Last week Exosite had a great time at IoT Stream Conference interacting with numerous IoT enthusiasts and professionals in sunny San Francisco. As the IoT world drives forward, we are turning our focus towards Santa Clara, California, in preparation for the IoT Developers Conference (DevCon) on May 6th and 7th. CTO Mark Benson will once again represent Exosite as he discusses his presentation on Understanding and Mitigating IoT Security Patterns.
DevCon is an event focused on in-depth technical analysis, tutorials, hands-on demonstrations, business strategies, and product updates for IoT product developers and businesses interested in building their IoT strategy. Topics include:
Designing ultra-low power IoT nodes
Exploring connectivity protocols and industry standards
Building hubs to harness the data explosion
Utilizing software development environments
Understanding and managing security-related issues

Understanding and Mitigating IoT Security Patterns:
Connected products and services are becoming the new standard. Companies around the world are building bridges to their customers, reducing operational expenses, and improving the strength and resilience of their brand.
But, with great opportunity comes great risk. Security is the foundation upon which all IoT products are built, and if that foundation is unsettled or is breached, user experience may suffer, data may be lost, partnerships may be rocked, and brand trust may plummet.
This presentation addresses available best practices, processes, and tools that will enable us to secure the future of our connected product and service economy.
