Surfing the new wave of IoT data easily and securely

Join Agilient and leading thinkers from partners Unisys and Sightline in the US, exploring cyber security in critical infrastructure related to SCADA, embedded systems and the Internet of Things (IoT).


We are seeing a massive increase in the uptake of IoT and sensor technologies across all sectors. McKinsey forecasts that:

The number of businesses that use the IoT technologies has increased from 13 percent in 2014 to about 25 percent today. And the worldwide number of IoT-connected devices is projected to increase to 43 billion by 2023, an almost threefold increase from 2018. Sensor technology—embedded in IoT devices—will continue to become cheaper, more advanced, and more widely available. In turn, this availability and cost-effectiveness will make new sensor applications possible, including large-scale monitoring and detection. Meanwhile, computing power has increased about 100 times in the past 15 years.

Furthermore, advances in the technologies that contribute to the IoT mean that all affected sectors can now access functionality that did not exist five years earlier. For instance, B2B companies have started using Industry 4.0 technologies to maintain direct connections to their products in the field. This constant monitoring makes predictive maintenance possible and improves efficiency and equipment uptime1.

However, it is challenging to make the most of this new technology and link it in securely with legacy hardware and software systems.

This live event explores these issues, including:

– The security of SCADA, embedded systems and sensors.
– Maximising the benefits of Industry 4.0.
– Case studies, transformative technologies connecting the physical world with the digital world.
– Case studies, maximising the use of cheap and easily-available sensors to optimise your processes
