Measuring Success with Real Results
Most of the sensor information you get is pretty binary. Things are working or they are not; yet somehow you are required to report how you have improved operations with real results. How do you go from Big Data to relevant data in a manner that proves the value of your IoT deployment?
Industrial IoT Conference
Trustworthiness is a paradigm put forth by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and IIC (Industrial Internet Consortium) to address the relationship of key system characteristics of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) component and systems. The IIC defines trustworthiness as the degree of confidence one has that a system performs as expected, characterized by the five key elements of safety, security, reliability, resilience and privacy in the face of environmental disruptions, human errors, system faults and attacks. Trustworthiness is a trait used for years to define the characteristics of both IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operation Technology) systems. In IT, trustworthiness mainly addresses security, reliability, and privacy. On the other hand, trustworthiness in OT mainly addresses safety, reliability and resilience. Addressing the missing key system characteristics in both IT and OT systems and focusing on the relationship of the five key characteristics of the IIoT, trustworthiness paradigm will solve many IT/OT convergence problems, especially conflicts between safety, security, and privacy.

Why DIY is DOA for IoT Security
Securing IoT is unlike any other computing scenario we’ve secured in the past. Like icing on a cake, nearly all-previous security solutions have been ‘layered’ on top of the device. This approach to secure IoT simply is not possible. For IoT, security needs to be in the cake batter… before the cake is baked. The critical importance of IoT in today’s IT infrastructure has passed the threshold of tolerance for using open source or DIY solutions. Most organizations need complete, flexible, commercial solutions including management (GUI), reporting and analytics…and designed to be ‘in the cake batter’ and not layered on.

Bluetooth 5: One PAN to Rule Them All
Bluetooth 5 is a new personal area network protocol released by the Bluetooth SIG to improve and grow the capabilities of an already existing and successful protocol. This lecture talks about the ins and outs of Bluetooth 5 from a use case, hardware, and protocol standpoint. Bluetooth 5 now provides more capabilities of any PAN communication and is set to overtake the IoT world as the de-facto standard for near range communication.
