Today, we are walking, talking, data-generating engines. In fact, our lives are wrapped with all of the information every single second. Consider this, by 2025, an average connected person anywhere in the world will interact with connected devices nearly 4,800 times per day — basically one interaction every 18 seconds. But, data isn't created equally. And, data can be quite different. It's critical to understand that data created by embedded device like machine-to-machine and IoT are much different than what your laptop might create. This is why it's so critical to understand data context, how to control and leverage this data, and where security applies.

In this session, we're going to discuss the connected future, understand various types of data sources, ways that organizations are controlling all of this data, and where security best practices can be applied. Specifically, we'll cover:
• The state of the industry: A data perspective
• The connected future: You're in it already
• Understanding and managing data sources
• Integrating control and security best practices
• Final thoughts and a look to the future
