Presenter: Dr Michael H. Goldner, Dean of EC-Council University, EC Council University
The Internet of Things (the new buzzword for the tech industry) is increasing the connectedness of people and things on a scale that was once beyond imagination. Connected devices outnumber the world’s population by 1.5 to 1.It is expected to eventually touch some 200 billion cars, appliances, machinery and devices globally, handling things like remote operation, monitoring and interaction among Internet-connected products.
In combination with the fact that there are almost as many cell-phone subscriptions (6.8 billion) as there are people on this earth (seven billion), we have all the ingredients for a Perfect Cyber Storm.
Join me for an informal discussion of the challenges for our profession, and some possible solutions.
