IoT in Defence Part 2: Case studies from Thales

*Webinar Only*The ability to capture and analyse data from distributed connected devices offers the potential to optimise processes, create new revenue streams, and improve customer service. However, the IoT also exposes organisations to new security vulnerabilities introduced by increased network connectivity and devices that are not secured by design. Likewise, the ability to fully utilise an IoT product within the constraints of defence industry acquisition frameworks is not without its challenges. This presentation will cover these aspects, including technical governance regimes, to operate IoT “stuff” in the defence world.

Presenter: Kerry Lunney, Country Engineering Director/Chief Engineer, Thales Australia and International Council of Systems Engineering (INCOSE) President-Elect
