  • Check the security maturity of your Retail POS environment Recorded: Oct 14 2020 48 mins
    Andy Mattice, Solutions Enablement, Lexmark; Ron Zahavi, Chief Strategist for IoT Standards, Microsoft Azure IoT
    Internet-connected devices, from point-of-sale payment devices such as signature scanners, to audit-logging devices such as printers and cash dispensers, have dramatically increased retail industry security threats. New threats are constantly emerging, and attackers are becoming more capable and organized. At the same time, compliance requirements for security and data protection are becoming more stringent. Retail organizations are rightly concerned about developing robust security and data protection plans.

    Retail establishments need to take a structured, top-down approach toward setting goals and a means to assess the current security state, trading off investment against risk in a sensible manner. This webinar takes concepts identified in the IIC Industrial Internet Security Framework and the IoT SMM Practitioner’s Guide and will help retail organization stakeholders determine their security needs. First, business stakeholders use the model to define security goals and objectives tied to risks. Then, technical teams within the retail organization, or third-party assessment vendors, map these objectives into tangible security techniques and capabilities, and identify an appropriate target security maturity level.

    Attendees will learn how to match their investment with their security needs as they migrate their point-of-sale devices within the IOT world.
  • Autonomy Beyond The Car Recorded: Sep 30 2020 30 mins
    Dr. Stan Schneider, CEO, Real-Time Innovations (RTI)
    Robocars will make life better and more efficient. But autonomous vehicles (AVs) that do everything drivers can do are still years or even decades away. And since operation with nobody in the car is critical for economic viability, we need a way to help the AV with “corner cases”. The best way to enable AVs sooner is to use human operators to suggest strategies when the vehicle gets stuck. That requires vehicle fleets to have control rooms. This session will examine the potential and challenge of practical teleoperation, including combining assistance strategies, control-center design, cloud computing, and 5G connectivity. It will also consider the architecture required to connect in-vehicle control and remote oversight. These systems should not be designed independently. AVs need a consistent architecture for the vehicle, control center, and cloud.

  • Next Generation of IoT Communication Recorded: Jul 15 2020 21 mins
    Ulrich Graf, Senior Engineer Industry 4.0 & Industrial IoT, Huawei Technologies
    IoT Communication, especially IIoT communication, is machine to machine communication, which is quite different from the human to human centric communication that the existing Internet was originally designed for. Privacy and security is one of the major concerns of IoT communication, as most of the communication will not be monitored or controlled by a human being. High precision services are very essential in some of the IoT system where any interruption of the service will cause serious and non-affordable damages. And last but not least, the interoperability among various IoT networks/systems remains a challenge. This presentation will contribute some initial thoughts and concepts trying to tackle the aforementioned challenges.
