Looking Inward – Protecting the Data that IoT Generates, Now and in a Quantum Future

Rob Vanderberry

Regional Sales Manager | Thales

While ‘cyber security’ means many things in the world of information technology, and perhaps especially in discussion of the Internet of Things, there is an ever-growing need for organizations to shift their focus to (or at least include in their focus) their own sensitive data. WHAT that data is… WHERE it resides in the network and Clouds and where it travels outside of the network… and HOW to protect that data even if bad actors gain access to networks and systems, are the key discoveries companies must accomplish and address, to avoid the ravages of ransomware and data breaches. Join Thales Cloud Security’s Rob Vanderberry to explore these topics in an IoT world that faces new implications surrounding 5G and the coming Quantum Computing Age.
