IoT panel discussion: Data sharing and security in an IoT world
The panel will discuss the importance of data sharing and security. There are many popular reasons why sensitive data is not shared and there are emerging strategies to overcome these challenges. Data sharing enables innovation so we must find a way. First responders are capturing a lot of data and sharing insights is the first step, but sharing sensitive data is a bridge too far for many. We will explore the interoperability and security landscape and show that trust preserving data sharing is not only important for productivity and service delivery but critical for the future. And the future is upon us.
