“One of the biggest challenges facing the adoption of IoT today is security, and we’ve seen what cybercriminals are capable of doing when it is not top of mind for manufacturers or consumers,” said Gary Davis, chief consumer security evangelist, McAfee. “Our digital, connected lives are evolving rapidly and with that so must the ecosystem, from manufacturers to security companies, to enable these devices to be connected with confidence.”

As connected devices and IoT reach critical mass the attack surface expands exponentially as do the risks associated with those devices. In his keynote, Gary will highlight the risks and threats to IoT including botnets and bitcoin mining and what needs to happen to enable the use of these devices in a secure way.

“McAfee is a name synonymous with PC and mobile protection against malware, and in the protection of your privacy. With IoT however, the threat goes beyond the devices you communicate with but to the device you communicate to such as thermostats, smart locks and other things, Carl Ford, CEO, Crossfire Media, executive director of content, IoT Evolution. “Gary gives us his experience and guidance on how to protect your devices from being part of the problem in securing the Internet of Things.”
