The rise of the nano influencer - harnessing the power and social influence of your customers to transform your brand

Social media has transformed our ability to engage with people personally at scale. And yet, as brands, we continue to push ads into the eyeballs of our 'users' without recognizing their unique power as human beings. We will demonstrate how our system targets the individual, understands the incentives that uniquely motivate them and sponsors them to create and share content about the brand across their social platforms. Our system can track and reward people through their social links, and pay people for affiliate sales, but the true power is the ability for brands to have millions of customers sharing the reasons they love a brand, what it stands for and the impact it is making. When millions of people share a brands purpose in unison, the brand moves beyond the transactional product story and elevates - becoming a powerful brand movement. We will walk through the data and technology that make this possible.

The Zettabyte Era and What it Means

The Internet processed more than a zettabyte (one million petabytes) of data in 2016, and this is expected to double approximately every three years. Meanwhile, several more zettabytes are being handled internally by enterprise IT departments and third-party datacenters How and why is all this data being generated? How can enterprises and organizations get a handle on it? What can and should they be doing with it? How will we be able to handle data's continued rapid growth? What implications does all of this data have for the state of the world, and for the chances of all nations to improve themselves socioeconomically with it? This session will review these questions and provide an outline of how enterprises, organizations -- and entire nations -- can improve themselves during the ongoing Zettabyte Era.

The IoT: It’s Cool, Creepy, and (Sometimes) Just Plain Wrong

What’s not to love about all those smart, cool, and connected “things” we parade around with these days? Admit it: it can be liberating, fascinating, and fun especially for the data aficionados who are on a never-ending quest to discover the latest breaking insights. But what happens when these cool things get hacked and/or our personal information is stolen or shared without our permission and/or the government wants more access all in the name of national/global security? In this era of the Internet of Things, we can no longer relegate this discussion to the privacy freaks and security geeks in the back room. It’s one in which we all need to participate – with a special shout-out to the developer community.

Evolution of Cyberattacks from IT (Information Technology) to in Industrial IOT (IIOT)

Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology(OT) Cybersecurity is both very similar and completely different. OT for full featured Windows and Linux operating systems e.g. Set-Top Boxes, DVRs, ATMs is extremely similar. And yet the OT Cybersecurity for Manufacturing (Modbus) to Oil and Gas and Wind Turbines and Jet Engines is very different. For IT and full featured OS OT, the attacker relies on amplification or replay of inputs and exploits to run remote code. So protection works on the node or the device. IT Cyberattacks frequently look to exfiltrate data. OT cyberattacks look to sabotage physical systems. OT does not rely on injecting remote code, but simply using the protocols as they were meant to be used and no individual sensor or actuator is doing anything unusual but in the overall context the system is compromised and sabotaged. This talk focuses on both the striking similarities and stunning differences in the paradigms of IT and OT.

Taking the Hard out of Hardware

Software geeks fear hardware. It's a fact of life: code is easy to write and easy to change, but hardware catches on fire if you put it together wrong. But this is changing! Hardware is becoming cheaper and easier to work with every day and can often be managed with the same tools you use to deploy code to the cloud. Join self-described software guy and hardware-phobe Ronald McCollam for a guided trip from the safe world of web development to the scary lands of hardware and back again. We'll see how easy it can be to make the leap from managed code to microprocessors!

API Cyber Security Deep Dive

API Security has moved from being an afterthought to a critical component of API deployments. Organizations are now evaluating many security services to meet business needs. Foundational security services, such as data encryption, rate limiting, and access control are now available across a range of on premise, CDN, and SAAS offerings to provide organizations the flexibility of aligning API security with overall security needs. Advanced attacks, including bot detection, API data and control system attacks, and API DDoS attacks are a big data problem which requires large scale processing techniques to reliably identify and remediate attacks. Once again, multiple security platform choices are becoming available. Moving forward, one can envision the availability of a security services menu that supports automated deployment and delivers the desired API security to protect an organization’s critical assets.

IoT = Device + Cloud. Best practices for End To End IoT Architecture

When designing an IoT product it's so easy to focus on the one component in the IoT architecture that's within our comfort zone, and forget the rest. One example is of a HW-oriented CTO that designs the PCB and afterwards realizes their HW is too weak because of cloud IoT protocols and the required encryption. In this talk I'll discuss the major questions the architect has to ask in order to design an end-to-end IoT architecture, which should be a step before the design of any specific component. I'll also demonstrate a live demo that brings AWS IoT together with Alexa.

Emerging grid-connected technologies - physical and cyber implications for resiliency, reliability, and robustness

IoT and other grid-connected emerging technologies have the potential to significantly benefit both the power grid and society as a whole: improving our ability to leverage renewable resources, respond faster to natural and man-made attacks, and maintain infrastructure at higher utilization levels without the need for major additional infrastructure buildout. However, the converse is that weaknesses in planning, security, coordination, and supporting operator situational awareness can lead to these devices worsening the status of the system. This talk with look at these devices from the human, organizational, physical and cyber perspectives, and highlight approaches that can help ensure these devices (and the systems on which they’re connected) are reliable, robust, and resilient.

Towards Future Mobility with Mesh Connected Vehicles

The most cost-effective solution to acquire massive amounts of actionable urban data and expand wireless coverage for everyone in the city may be to rapidly connect as many vehicles moving around the city as possible. In fact, vehicles are everywhere, have large batteries, come with dozens of sensors and benefit from a dedicated frequency band (DSRC 5.9 GHz). Once we turn vehicles into mobile Wi-Fi hotspots, they can connect to many other things – inside and outside of the vehicle – serving as the perfect data couriers for the Internet of Things. Last but not last, they can easily connect with each other over high-speed wireless links, building mesh networks that can span an entire city. After our company Veniam connected hundreds vehicles with multi-purpose, multi-network onboard units in September 2014, this real-world mesh has served more than 5 million Internet sessions and has since proven to be a real asset as Porto strives to overcome the digital divide, increase safety, reduce pollution, and control traffic. Singapore and New York City are now following suit. Since roughly 26% of the world’s 1.2 billion vehicles belong to enterprise fleets that generally travel many miles every day, starting with commercial vehicles like buses, taxis and shared vehicles appears to be the best strategy to scale the number of connected vehicles. Add to that the current trend towards mobility as an on-demand service – which will probably be provided in the near future by fleets of shared autonomous vehicles. Soon this strategy may actually be the only one we need to create vibrant connected cities with exciting new mobility services worldwide.
