McCullough Robertson Lawyers will host PMIQ's August Chapter meeting. We will be having a highly relevant foray into IoT & Cyber Security.
The IoT is here and it's growing..fast. It's estimated some 30 billion things will be connected by 2020 generating trillions of dollars of value globally. Like any nascent technology enabler, there are security concerns with the safety and security of the IoT and thus concepts that sit atop - Smart Cities, Connected Transport, Connected Health etc. There are also questions beginning to be asked about the perceived value considering a recent Cisco study found that over 60% of IoT projects/pilots failed. Lani will discuss the current use cases and possible causes for the high failure rate of IoT projects/pilots
