General Electric calls it the Industrial Internet – this convergence of machine and intelligent data, and it’s changing the way we work. New ecosystems of connected machines have the potential to increase efficiency, minimize waste, and make the people operating them make smarter decisions. But are they secure? Is the risk higher than the return?

Join experts from Wavefront, Wurldtech, Elliptic Tech, and BCIT, as well as other senior technology decision makers with responsibilities for major infrastructure such as BC Hydro, for this interactive roundtable event to explore emerging standards and best practices for securing core assets containing embedded connected devices.
We will discuss:

  • Retrofitting security on existing systems.
  • Secure protocols & standards to govern M2M communications. What is happening with LTE.
  • An over view of the evolving M2M architecture from being proprietary and vertically integrated, to being horizontal, scalable and open.
  • Not stalling innovation. Making smart decisions with respect to security while enabling technology driven business transformation.
