Venue One Aldwych

Synopsis

While IoT may be seemingly overhyped and vast, truth is, you need to adopt an IoT strategy to drive your competitive advantage.  The Internet of Things is transforming identity within the enterprise. Customers want to interact with your organisation and others across multiple devices, with a seamless experience across all channels, at all times, from anywhere in the world. It is imperative that you consider these needs to build a new digital ecosystem – where users, devices and ‘things’ form relationships. This ecosystem will touch all facets of your business; employees, resources, partners and customers. How do you make this IoT transition? It starts with identity. Building identity into your high touch points and bringing them together will require a modern approach to delivering your IoT strategy.

Our special guest for the evenings IoT discussion will be Channel 4 News reporter, Geoff White. An award-winning television news journalist and an engaging keynote speaker, Geoff will give us his perspective on consumer cybersecurity in the IoT space. Geoff will highlight key areas of focus to ensure you and your customers are protected as you venture into your own IoT initiative.

Geoff White, Channel 4 News Reporter

Geoff White shines light onto the technology that is changing our world for the better…and sometimes worse. An award-winning television news journalist at Channel 4 News and an engaging keynote speaker, he unveils a hidden world to audiences, elaborating on the latest developments in everything from cybercrime and cybersecurity, to internet dating and cutting-edge hardware.

Ever wondered how the latest developments in technology are affecting our world? Geoff White has. His reports at Channel 4 News aim to create real-world change, with a particular focus on e-crime and cybersecurity: his words have brought about arrests, regulatory investigations and legislative action.

Geoff also created the Data Baby project, a unique experiment which used a fictional online identity to expose how our personal data is being used – and abused – online. He now runs a series on cybercrime, tracking the shadow darkweb economy that feeds on stolen personal data, hacked computers and corporate incompetence. He is also the co-creator of The Secret Life of Your Mobile Phone, a live, interactive phone hacking stage performance which shows how the global technology industry is harvesting the data leaking from your handset.
