Why You Should Attend this Year’s Summit:

The 2020 IoT Government Summit will examine the continued development and integration of Internet of Things (IoT) and sensor technologies across the Federal Government. Representatives from both government and industry will discuss how these technologies are helping to enable federal agencies to provide more efficient and valuable services to their customers, the American public. The Summit will highlight use cases for IoT and sensor capabilities across different sectors such as defense, energy, transportation, and public safety. Presentations will also emphasize how IoT systems are enabling transformative capabilities such as 5G networks and play an integral role in the development of smart cities across the country.  
This educational forum allows relevant stakeholders to learn about IoT’s potential to advance a wide array of critical government capabilities. However, as connected devices become increasingly ubiquitous in every aspect of life, ensuring the reliability and security of IoTs has evolved into a serious concern for government officials. As such, senior-level network and cyber security officials will share their insights into successfully securing IoT connected devices and protecting personal data from bad actors.
Attendees will have the unique opportunity to learn from top decision-makers, research and development experts and acquisition professionals about current capability gaps, technological achievements, and future IoT initiatives. Delegates from government, industry and academia will make meaningful professional connections during the Summit’s many networking breaks and directly interact with senior-level speakers in town-hall style discussions.

Topics to be Covered at the Summit:
  • - Addressing the Security Risk of Internet Connected Sensors
  • - Improving the Cyber Security of Government Owned IoTs
  • - Levering IoT Technologies in the Creation of “Smart Cities”
  • - Utilizing Connected Sensors for Improved Battlespace Situational Awareness and Mission Assurance in the National Defense Context
  • - Enhancing Public Safety and Emergency Management Capabilities
  • - Developing Efficient, Reliable and Safe Modern Transportation Systems
  • - Evolving Federal Standards to Address Unique IoT Needs and Considerations
  • - 5G and IoTs: Expanding Networks and Increasing Speed
