The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing tremendously everyday.  Leading consulting firms say that less than 10% of devices connecting to our networks today are "traditional" IT platforms or systems, and the number of devices connected to the internet will exceed 30 billion by 2020.

From SCADA and ICS to wall thermostats and heart monitors to F-35s on final approach, high tech equipment in our daily lives is connecting in ways we have never imagined. Our Speakers and Panelists will explore the ways the world is connecting and how DoD is keeping pace ... or not.
