Meeting future privacy requirements
The two major challenges for IoT are Security and Privacy - Privacy being the biggest one. Security incidents have been part of our daily lives since years and following an apology, sometimes even with someone fired, the problem is fixed and people forget surprisingly fast. When it comes to privacy people are still quite relaxed and combine signing legal agreements without reading them with posting photos on Facebook. Privacy requirements will increase over time and services without an architecture capable of coping with new privacy requirements will have to be rebuilt.
Blockchain and Internet of Things: why a perfect match
While blockchain gained a lot of interest particularly in the FinTech domain, it is in the IoT space that most of the advantages brought by blockchain could be exploited. In this talk you will see how blockchain can help in addressing some of the most challenging problems of IoT such as scalability, security, data privacy and why the decentralised nature of blockchain perfectly matches with the intrinsic distributed and decentralised nature of IoT.
Challenges in the Internet of Things
This session is dedicated to removing the barriers to IoT connectivity, scaling operations in a secure and efficient way, thus motivating customers to expand their and your business. The existing choice of IoT connectivity solutions is continuously increasing. There is still a lack of secured, affordable and scalable connectivity services to support innovative, fast-growing start-ups and SMEs with their mission to connect everything and everywhere.
IoT is the ultimate and absolute convergence of communications and information technologies with an inter-dependence of all players on each other, leading to a collective success or failure of the entire ecosystem. So far, many developers, start-ups and SMEs often have to compromise on security to make a viable business case.
This session will be a great opportunity to discover the latest trends of IoT connectivity solutions for companies of all sizes to fulfill their needs.
IoT data platforms
Apache Kafka is a de-facto standard in most IoT data platforms and stream processing solutions. Kafka is the ideal solution to ingest and process sensor data at scale and in real time. This talk introduces Kafka, Confluent (the company driving Kafka evolution), typical IoT architectures and solutions.
