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

The Generative Enterprise: AI Driven to the Core
CEO | Digital Automation and Robotics Limited
Topics:• The significance of Generative AI• The impact on businesses - the Generative Enterprise Defined how this impacts organizational architectures.• the speed of impact, opportunities, and risks of generative AI for the enterprise• Provide examples to bring this to life - Embracing AI at the core can enable organizations to innovate, enhance efficiency, and deliver exceptional customer experiences that illustrate use case and how disruptive GenAI will be.• How does / should a business respond?• AI Skills and Workforce Development• Ethical and Responsible AI• Generative AI and intelligent automation combined to create the super humanThe topic would bring the audience on a journey with an introduction to GenAI (assume most know this), what this really means (hype removed) and how businesses need to response. Businesses must to look at their operating architectures and become generative, intelligently automated, constantly reinventing organisms that use AI in every facet of what they do. They have to create new economic value for themselves, shareholders and their workers in this new world at far higher rates than before (40% more), otherwise, their competitors will become generative enterprises ahead of them and Digital Darwinism then applies.
Blockchain, IoT and AI: The Convergence of Emerging Technologies
Sr Global IoT Cybersecurity Specialist | Amazon Web Services
Blockchain, IoT and AI are three technologies that have been disrupting various sectors and creating new opportunities for innovation and value creation.
