We are all increasingly dependent on and exposed to a multitude of connected devices. We trust them for an expanding number of critical applications while they collect and distribute a growing amount of data in sectors ranging from automotive, industrial, medical, smart buildings & cities, etc.

Security represents the main obstacle to safely unleash the hyperconnected world and IoT growth potential, and also represents a tremendous opportunity for companies able to tackle and resolve the security challenges effectively.

This event includes an exclusive presentation detailing the findings of a joint study McKinsey and the GSA have developed to identify today’s security-related challenges and opportunities for semiconductor companies in the IoT and the wider field of "connected devices".

The program also includes a range of other exciting speakers that will share their experiences and perspectives on security from inside and outside the world of semiconductors.
