Internet of Secure Things (IOST): Utility/Industry Grade Security of Network Connected Devices
Great America Meeting Room 1
08:55 - 09:20
Meetings with numerous utilities and industries reveal a suite of questions that frequently arise regarding secure connect/disconnect of IoT devices into their networks, such as: "The internet-of-things (IoT) will come to be the dominant form factor for sensors and communications devices used in utility and industrial settings. We see grid modernization via IoT. The consumer-focused IoT activities do not represent a coherent strategy in place to address how these devices/data are securely integrated into our systems." This presentation will address these needs and describe potential solutions.
