Moderator(s):

With more devices now connected to the internet than people, the Internet of Things is the next big thing. However, since much of what is being developed is based on technologies with known weaknesses, it can easily become the next big disaster.

The vision for the IoT is of a world where nearly everything and everybody is connected through the internet and this connectivity enhances the quality of life for individuals, and improves the efficiency of organizations and services. A related concept of Operational Technology foresees that industrial production in the future will be characterized by highly flexible mass production exploiting integration between the manufacturing machines themselves as well as the customers and suppliers.

All of this comes with privacy and security risks, which must be understood and managed by organizations adopting these new technologies.  However, the realization of the vision is also based on existing systems and infrastructures, which have known vulnerabilities. This amplifies a wide range of serious risks to security and individual privacy, which must also be addressed.

After attending this track, you will be able to:

  • Describe the Internet of Things and Operational Technology
  • Explain the benefits and risks arising from these
  • Describe the approaches needed to successfully manage these risks
  • Describe how organizations have successfully and securely implemented these technologies

 


After attending this block of sessions you will be able to

  • Describe the approaches needed to successfully manage these risks
  • Describe how organizations have successfully and securely implemented these technologies

This block qualifies for up to 3 Group Learning based CPEs depending on the number of sessions you attended.

Security and the Internet of Everything and Everyone

Date: Thursday, May 07, 2015 Time: 14:30-15:30

Security and the Internet of Everything and Everyone
Mike Small, KuppingerCole

The vision for an Internet of Everything and Everyone (IoEE) is for more than just an Internet of Things. It provides opportunities for organizations to get closer to their customers and to provide products and services that are more closely aligned to their needs. It provides the potential to enhance the quality of life for individuals, through better access to information and more control over their environment. It makes possible more efficient use of infrastructure by more precise control...

IoT Privacy Risks, Legislation and Solutions
John Sabo, OASIS Idtrust • Peter Niblett, IBM • Yariv Lenchner, Cyber-Ark Software • Kuan Hon, Queen Mary University of London • Erik Sucksdorff, GlobalSign

In this session the panel will look at how the IoT is changing the privacy landscape.  People are using devices without being aware of the amount of data that these devices are collecting or the potential uses to which this data will be put.  At the same time the legislation around privacy is being strengthened and how will this impact on the processing of this data.  How will the OASIS Privacy Management Reference Model and Methodology (PMRM) help to implement the policies...

Putting Identity at the Center of IoT- Kantara IDoT Strategic Review

Date: Thursday, May 07, 2015 Time: 15:30-16:30

Putting Identity at the Center of IoT- Kantara IDoT Strategic Review
Ingo Friese, Deutsche Telekom AG • Andre Boysen, DIACC / SecureKey Technologies • Victor Ake, ForgeRock • Hannes Tschofenig, ARM

The whole world is talking about the business opportunities that the Internet of Things (IoT) will enable. Industry analysts predict that IoT product and service suppliers will generate growing revenue exceeding $300 billion in 2020. While others forecasts that the worldwide market for IoT solutions will grow to $7.1 trillion in 2020. With numbers in the billions and trillions it’s no surprise that the enterprise is paying more and more attention. This landscape of promise also brings...

Process Control, Production IT and Operational Technology - No Go Areas for IDM?
Eleni Richter, EnBW

IDM usually covers classical office IT. IDM controls who is allowed to do things, who is responsible, who is inside and who stays outside. In areas of operational technologies (OT) and process control we find similar questions. This presentation will take a closer look at typical usecases and practical patterns in OT-Areas. Motivation and starting point: Why should IDM cope with OT? When is the right time to get involved? Decoupling, robustness and decentralization: Some...

Mastering IoT Privacy and Security Risks Without Losing the Benefits of IoT

Date: Thursday, May 07, 2015 Time: 17:00-18:00

Mastering IoT Privacy and Security Risks Without Losing the Benefits of IoT
Gershon Janssen, OASIS Open Standards Group • Jeff Stollman, RMTM • Peter Niblett, IBM • Dirk Wahlefeld, ITConcepts • Souheil Ben Yacoub, Verisign

Organizations, both commercial and non-commercial, are eager to explore the new opportunities afforded by the Internet of Things. Applications range from the apparently trivial, such as Internet-connected toothbrushes, all the way through to critical infrastructure such as power grids. The designers and operators of such solutions may not be aware of the risks that they are exposing themselves to, and lack the tools and processes to protect them properly. In this panel we will discuss:...
