“Who Owns and Protects the Democratized Data of IoT?”
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the term for the phenomenon where people and physical devices, such as vehicles, commercial and industrial equipment, medical devices and remote sensors, are connected to networks that are linked to the Internet. The proliferation of these devices is resulting in the communication of vast amounts of valuable data, creating an urgency to better understand, manage, secure and utilize this information.
The keynote speaker will be Daniel Obodovski, co-founder, Managing Partner for DND Ventures LLC and the author of “The Silent Intelligence, The Internet of Things.” In addition, two panels will be featured. “Who Owns and Protects the Democratized Data of IoT?” will be moderated by Navid Alipour, Managing Partner, Analytics Ventures and include panelists Tom Caldwell, President of CyberFlow Analytics, Stephen Coggeshall, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer, ID Analytics, Matt Harrigan, President and CEO of PacketSled, and Steve Kovsky, Sr. Manager, Digital Content and Corporate Marketing Communications for Websense.
“Privacy and Security Implications: What New Cyber Security Regimes and Policies Will Be Needed for the Resilient Network,” will be moderated by Justine Phillips, Attorney with Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton and include panelists Cecilia Anastos, Founder of Meta Enterprises, Sage Osterfeld, Chief Marketing Officer of AirPatrol, Chris Vera, Privacy Manager, San Diego Gas & Electric, and Jauher Zaidi, CEO and founder of Appriva and Palmchip.
“The Internet of Things is going to have one of the most dramatic impacts on consumers, government and business since the beginning of the Internet itself,” commented Darin Andersen, Founder and Chairman of CyberHive as well as President & CEO of CyberUnited. “However, like the impact of all new technology trends, there are numerous concerns around it. This event brings together some of the most significant authorities in the country, let alone San Diego, to discuss these issues and postulate solutions.”
