MWC Debate Stage, Hall 6

Session Description

The proliferation of billions of Internet of Things (IoT) devices has undoubtedly transformed the way we connect with people, homes, and things. However, this increased connectivity also brings about significant risks. With the number of IoT connections estimated to reach almost 25 billion globally by 2025, it is time to take a critical look at the vulnerabilities associated with widespread adoption.


IoT devices are too often designed with a focus on functionality and cost, and some may operate without encryption, leaving them susceptible to exploitation. Each device potentially represents an entry point into a network, making it more challenging to secure all access points.


How are we tackling these unprecedented vulnerabilities and mitigating potential data breaches and privacy infringements? How are we addressing the pressing need for uniform security standards for IoT devices?


Is the hyper-connected IoT future exposing us to way too many risks?


Join this imperative debate as industry experts aim to tackle these pressing questions and map out the path to a secure, connected future.
