Early registrants get their $5 entry fee back when they attend. Speaker Summary There are a million people saying that blockchain will solve all trust problems, but recently IOT has taken over our world and is expected to see hockey-stick like growth in the number of devices in the coming years. Can these technologies work together? Some of the best-expected benefits of IOT are realized when you combine with a trusted repository (like blockchain). Will the combination solve our problems, or just create more issues? What risks will businesses take? What are the advantages for your company? We’ll examine what’s happened over the last couple of years, some of the high-profile media cases and dive into lessons learned from what we’ve seen within our world as security experts on both these topics.
