The State of IoT Security - by Mike Nelson, VP of IoT Security at DigiCert

IoT devices continue to appear in all corners of our lives, delivering convenience, improved outcomes, and better decision making.  As consumers, businesses, and governments become reliant on these devices to deliver critical services and help make informed decisions, the security of these devices becomes essential.  This presentation will highlight positive shifts in the IoT security regulatory environment, and in how manufacturers are designing and deploying IoT devices.  It will also highlight common IoT vulnerabilities and risks and will share best practices for addressing these challenges.

Mike Nelson is the VP of IoT Security at DigiCert, a leader in digital security. 

Before DigiCert, Mike spent his career in healthcare IT including time at the US Department of Health and Human Services, GE Healthcare, and Leavitt Partners. Mike’s passion for the industry stems from his personal experience as a type 1 diabetic and his use of connected technology in his treatment.

To inspire Wisconsin and the Midwest to be a leader in the internet of Things evolution. We believe that our rich history of supporting industries such as manufacturing, software, retail and healthcare give the region the experience and knowledge needed to foster the Internet of Things. 

We also believe if our companies and their employees are to continue to stay and grow here, and if new companies are going to be built here, we need to promote Wisconsin and the Midwest as the epicenter for IoT and drive technological advancement in the region so the world knows if you want to succeed in the Internet of Things evolution, you build it in the Midwest.
