IoT – Key to developing ‘hotbeds of innovation’

The EU has been urged to abandon the privacy rules ‘it is so hung up about’ because they are hampering technological innovation.

A Brussels conference on the future of the future of the Internet of Things (IoT) in Europe on Thursday heard from key industry figures on the emergence of an IoT ecosystem.

Wim de Waele, the CEO of Belgium’s Eggsplore who has been in the ICT business for almost 30 years, stressed the need to work on large-scale pilots to experiment with technology. Continue reading “IoT – Key to developing ‘hotbeds of innovation’”

Cybersecurity in Smart Buildings – Vulnerabilities, Strategic Messages for the Industry

Background: Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities in Smart Buildings

Today’s smart buildings are increasingly enabled by Internet of Things (IoT) and made functional by the ongoing convergence of operational technology (OT) systems and information technology (IT) systems in buildings. A host of new elements such as the cloud, remote access, data sharing and analytics, and connected and shared networks has fundamentally changed how built environments are being used and operated.
