    An approach to ensure Enterprise IoT security

    The world of the internet of things is changing rapidly. New kinds of devices, advanced technologies, M2M architecture—all that produces new risks for information security. Each class of IoT devices (Home, Enterprise, Industrial) has its own specific features and security requirements. The speaker will review requirements to IoT in the enterprise. Business takes an advantage of using a big number of geographically distributed devices and at the same time retaining the options of centralized control and monitoring as well as ability to check security settings. The speakers will investigate what technologies ensure protection of distributed IoT systems and what is the difference between IoT and traditional IT solutions.

Security Path: Dev vs Manage vs Hack

Want to visit   +34

Authors: Dmitry Mannanikov and Mikhail Levin

We all started our career either as engineers or as operators—developed and created systems, experimented with design and research. But eventually each of us has come up to the question: what to do next, in a year or two, and what we would like to become in five or ten years. How to create a career in the security area? What would help in development, and what can be a dead end both for hackers and defenders? Is it possible to be a bug hunter throughout all life or shifting to a paperwork expert or people manager is inevitable? What is more attractive to hack and design: software or bulletproof enterprise processes? Specialists thinking about their future and managers guiding their staff in development are welcome.
