Breakout Session

Creating the Internet of Sustainable and Trusted Things

November 2, 2016, 3:00 pm-4:00 pm

The Internet of Things (IoT) can enable great leaps forward for sustainability. Everything from energy-efficient lighting to raw materials tracking to sensors that tag inventory coming in and out of the supply chain will transform business as we know it. But as we take one step closer to achieving our sustainability goals, are we at risk of storing up gigantic new problems? Will the collection, use, and availability of enormous amounts of data create new and unexpected privacy and security risks? Join us as we explore the risks, solutions, and opportunities that arise from living in a world where people, data, things, and processes are connected like never before.
