ConnecTech Asia

‹ Back
The connected future is here – let’s make a connected world that is secure.

The Internet of Things promises to change the way we live. But it can put our security and privacy at risk, in ways we’ve never seen before. Gartner projects that more than 20 billion consumer-grade devices will be connected by 2020. Many IoT offerings are rushed to market at the lowest possible cost with little consideration for basic security and privacy protections.

IoT security and privacy threats are real and growing in frequency. Not only has the volume of threats increased, but the threats are more diverse and innovative than ever before.

The Internet Society’s IoT Trust Framework identifies the core requirements manufacturers, service providers, distributors/purchasers and policymakers need to understand, assess and embrace for effective security and privacy as part of the Internet of Things.

ConnecTechAsia, the brand new umbrella event encompassing CommunicAsia, BroadcastAsia and the new NXTAsia, is where technology, ideas and business converge. ConnecTechAsia is Asia’s only B2B platform that covers the entire spectrum of communication, broadcast, and enterprise technology and services catering to the needs of the industry in Asia and beyond, providing the technological innovation and thought-leadership that will help pave the way towards a brighter and more connected world.
