Why Should You Participate in the Cisco #IoT Security Grand Challenge?

- May 1, 2014 - 0 Comments

Eight weeks ago, Cisco launched the Cisco IoT Security Grand Challenge, an industry-wide initiative to bring the global security community together to secure the IoT. Despite its overwhelming business benefits, IoT adoption also significantly increases security risks. So this Challenge is really just a blatant attempt to bring the best and brightest security minds to the table to help us find innovative IoT security solutions. Thus far, it’s worked – we have some fantastic submissions. But we know there are more out there and we’d love to see what you can do!

If you’re interested in learning more about the Challenge, please plan to attend a free one hour webinar on Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at 12:00pm EDT. Dave Evans, Cisco’s Chief Futurist, and Dr. Tao Zhang, Cisco’s Chief Scientist for Smart Connected Vehicles, will talk about why the Challenge is so important to the future of IoT, and answer any questions you may have. This is a live, interactive webinar, so bring your specific questions. I’ll see you there!
