International Conference on Smart Grid and Internet of Things (SGIoT)

General Cybersecurity Conference

 July 11 – 13, 2018 | Ontario, Canada

Cybersecurity Conference Description

The IoT is a grand vision as it ascribes the concept of millions of interconnected intelligent devices that can communicate with one another, and thereby control the world around us. Technically speaking, the smart grid can be considered to be an example of the IoT composed of embedded machines, which sense and control the behavior of the energy world. The IoT-driven smart grid is currently a hot area of research boosted by the global need to improve electricity access, economic growth of emerging countries, and the worldwide power plant capacity additions. GlobalData, a renowned consulting firm, forecasted that the global power transformer market is anticipated to increase from $10.3 billion in 2013 to $19.7 billion in 2020, with an astounding compound annual growth rate of 9.6 percent due to the phenomenal rise in energy demand in China, India and the Middle East. Therefore, it is the perfect time to invest research initiative, e.g., through our event, in the IoT-dominated smart grid sector.

In addition to its timeliness, the event comprises a broad range of interests. The theme invites ideas on how to achieve more efficient use of resources based largely on the IoT-based machine-to-machine (M2M) interactions of millions of smart meters and sensors in the smart grid specific communication networks such as home area networks, building area networks, and neighborhood area networks. The smart grid also encompasses IoT technologies, which monitor transmission lines, manage substations, integrate renewable energy generation (e.g., solar or wind), and utilize hybrid vehicle batteries. Through these technologies, the authorities can smartly identify outage problems, and intelligently schedule the power generation and delivery to the customers. Furthermore, the smart grid should teach us a valuable lesson that security must be designed in from the start of any IoT deployment. Since there is an alarming lack of standards to address the protection of the secret keys and/or the life-cycle security of the embedded smart grid devices, intruders could use conventional attack techniques to breach the security just as in any other IoT deployment.

Internet of Things National Institute

General Cybersecurity Conference

 May 9 – 10, 2018 | Washington DC, United States

Cybersecurity Conference Description 

The Internet of Things (IOT) is defined as billions of vehicles, buildings, process control devices, wearables, medical devices, drones, consumer/business products, mobile phones, tablets, and other “smart” objects that are wirelessly connecting to and communicating with each other. This new top law practice area is raising unprecedented legal and liability issues.

As one of the most transformative and fast-paced technology developments in recent years, IoT will require businesses, policymakers, and lawyers (M&A, IP, competition, litigation, health law, IT/outsourcing, and privacy/cybersecurity) to identify and address the escalating legal risks of doing business in a connected world.

Attend this institute to:

  • Discover why corporate, law firm, government, university, and other attendees gave the last two IoT Institutes rave reviews, calling it “magical,” “eye-opening,” with “rock star” speakers, and overall “a grand slam.”
  • Gain insights and practical guidance on the latest legal, legislative, regulatory, and liability issues of the IoT transformation—a game-changer for businesses, policymakers, and lawyers that’s generating hundreds of billions of dollars in spending globally.
  • Explore need-to-know IoT hot topics: big data/ privacy, cybersecurity, litigation/mitigation, cloud/artificial intelligence, connected healthcare, ethics, global IoT product development and sales, insurance risk allocation, and homeland/national security.

Malicious Software and Hardware in Internet of Things (Mal-IoT)

General Cybersecurity Conference

 May 8, 2018 | Ischia, Italy

Cybersecurity Conference Description

Cyber-physical and smart embedded systems, already highly networked, will be even more connected in the near future to form the Internet of Things, handling large amount of private and safety critical data. The pervasive diffusion of these devices will create several threats to privacy and could open new possibilities for attackers, since the security of even large portions of the Internet of Things could be harmed by compromising a reduced number of components. The possibility of securely updating devices should be guaranteed and it should be possible to verify and assert the root of trust of components. With respect to this context we expect contributions in different areas of security in Internet of Things. Topics of the workshop include but are not limit to:

– Malicious firmware design and detection
– Malware in Internet of Things applications
– Hardware root of trust
– Privacy issues of smart-home systems and complex systems
– Hardware Trojans and their effects on systems
– Hardware authentication and IP protection
– Secure communication and key-management
– Implementation attacks and countermeasures
– Emerging threats and attack vectors in the Internet of Things
– Supply chain security
