8:50am - Stacey Higginbotham of Stacey on IoT: Mission Impossible

The IoT of today is far more secure than the IoT of six years ago when the Mirai botnet awakened everyone to the problem. But a multitude of factors mean that our networks are full of vulnerabilities ready to exploit. Government regulations and attention to security will help, but the problem isn't one we can solve. It's simply something we must adapt to. We'll talk about the current rules of the road, and best practices that line up with where regulations are heading. 

9:50am - Katerina Megas, NIST IoT Cybersecurity Program Manager 

Will provide an overview of the NIST IoT cybersecurity program principles, some of the key policy drivers for the NIST work, and highlight some of the core NIST guidance that can inform manufacturers of IoT products as they consider cybersecurity features and activities during their product development.
