Speaker Presentation

“House Made of Glass – How to Live in the IoT Era of Wire Tapping?”

 

Johannesburg: 26 May

Cape Town : 28 May

Presented by: Marcin Sikorski

Let’s talk about the dark side of the Internet of Things.

Some people glorify IoT, believing that it will revolutionize industry and the world before our eyes. In fact, we are living in an era of houses made of glass. Our emotions, behaviors and habits are monitored, tracked and analyzed 24/7. At the same time, we are becoming prisoners of our own indifference.

Our security is weakened by destabilization, disappearance of boundaries and IoT’s ethical problems. I will unfold elements of this puzzle and explain what we can do with this both as testers and as consumers. Let’s start from more aware buying and go through each element up to legislation level.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

We can choose the thickness and transparency of our glass houses.

Companies do not have to explain their decisions!

Destabilization and vanishing of borders is already happening.
