Privacy In The Connected World And New Secure Applications
Innovations in IOT are outpacing the privacy legislation designed to protect consumers. This session looks at the privacy implications and in particular, who actually owns the data?
This session will demonstrate how wearables must be secured by design in order to bring trust to end-users and guarantee their privacy and security. The cloud infrastructure that increasingly stores sensitive data must also be tightly secured and we will present an end-to-end solution, from device to cloud, enabling new applications such as payment, transport, corporate usage and strong secure authentication.

Closing Keynote: Security that Helps You Iterate Your Product More Quickly
The merits of wearables are clear for fitness, medical and convenience. However, what about the risks to privacy, security, and related peace of mind, especially with digital stalking on the rise? We'll help put such risks in context, separating truth from hype, and offer a vendor neutral framework to address such risks in ways that can actually help you safely accelerate delivery of features to customers. Such acceleration leverages insight from collaboration with hundreds of companies working together building the Internet of Things, and is a stark contrast to how traditional security so often impedes or slows progress in traditional IT. This session will discuss how effective security can be built into wearable technology in ways that can not only help protect your brand and accelerate your delivery rate, but also increase the safety, security, and peace of mind of your customers.

Brian Witten, Sr. Director, IoT, Symantec Corporation
