The Internet of Things (IoT) is the term for the phenomenon where people and things (physical devices) are connected to networks that are linked to the Internet and communicating vast amounts of valuable data.

Now in its fourth year, the CyberTECH Securing the Internet of Things Forum (SIOT) features global thought leaders, industry experts and luminaries exploring the IoT phenomenon from the private, government and academic perspectives. Topics including IoT security, privacy, innovation and the influence of policy provide forward thinking and actionable intelligence in an evolving, competitive marketplace.
