Weaving identity into the Internet of Things

Internet of Things (IoT) systems inevitably intersect with users who interact actively or passively with IoT networks. This emerging mesh of users, devices and sensors hold the potential to create richer and more personalized services that can be disruptive.
How should we think about this emerging mesh of devices and users to benefit our business? How will biometrics impact this mesh? What are the privacy, security considerations, and what models can be used to move efficiently to create competitive advantage?
This talk will address the nature and opportunities created by this mesh, provide some examples of real-world companies that are disrupting the market, and provide a roadmap to standards and technologies that will create opportunity. We will consider a use case in physical security and access control that spans several IoT verticals, and leave the audience with a blueprint to navigate these changes for their own business.
