Modeled on the World Economic Forum, Amphion is characterized as "where
security meets the Internet of Things." The event brings together
thought leaders from academia, business, government and the technology
industry to discuss the threats and opportunities presented by the
unprecedented proliferation of mobile apps and connected devices. The
San Francisco event is sponsored by a 'who's who' of mobile and device
security innovators, including gold sponsors Mocana, Intel Corporation,
Wind River, McAfee, Codenomicon and VDC Research. Fixmo, Cryptography
Research, Metaforic and Arxan Technologies are also sponsors.
"As the rollout of the Internet of Things accelerates, the industry must
ensure that better security is built into devices and apps from the very
start. Unfortunately, that's just not happening right now, and it puts
us all at risk," said Kurt Stammberger, CISSP, the Chair of the Amphion
Forum. "The Amphion Forum provides industry players with an arena for
sharing best practices and solutions across industry lines - crucial for
the cross-industry Internet of Things - and we'll have iOS and Android
device makers talkng to medical device makers, industrial controller
manufacturers, smart grid designers - every type of non-PC connected
device concern you can imagine."
After an opening statement by Adrian Turner, CEO of Mocana to welcome
forum attendees, the event will kick off with two keynote addresses:
Chris Rommel, vice president of embedded software and hardware for VDC
Research, will present "Navigating the Internet of Things: Securing
Profits by Protecting Devices," followed by Ira Winkler, chief security
strategist at Codenomicon, speaking about "Preventing Zero-Day
Vulnerabilities on Mobile Devices."
The morning session will continue with two panel discussions. First,
Alberto Yepez, managing director at Trident Capital will lead a panel of
experts in exploring "The Enterprise App Tsunami - What Leading
Organizations Need to Know to Ride the Wave while Securing Their
Interests." After a short break, Chris Rommel of VDC Research will lead
an expert panel with luminaries from Intel, Wind River and McAfee
addressing device security and threats to the Internet of Things.
The afternoon forum agenda comprises four technology tracks featuring
