Thank you to our impressive speakers, Ken Belva & Florence Hudson! In case you missed their speeches, they touched on cyber security, ransomware and the Internet of Things. Here are a few speaking points:

• The Internet of Things could represent $19T in economic value by 2025
• IoT risk and security awareness is increasing, and highlighting the need for security research and development
• Research and education activities are growing in Smart Campus, Smart Grid, IoT and Cybersecurity (i.e. ASU, CSU, Lehigh, NC State, VaTech, Princeton, Stanford, UW and more)!
• IoT will have an impact on higher education and K-12
• Not just an IT problem: affects IT, business, science, reputation & possibly physical security and safety
