The future of security: from restrictive to cognitive

We are on the verge of a new era of smart connected things, generating a wealth of information about ourselves and our environment.  As technology advances, security threats are increasing in sophistication, speed, and severity. Hackers and thieves will be able to do far more damage in far less time. But what about the security measures to counter them? As devices and other things become more powerful, observant, and intelligent, how will that impact both physical and online security?

As devices, such as smartphones and wearables, become aware of user context and behaviors, how will our understanding of identity and authentication change? Can real-time heuristics discover zero-day attacks as they happen? Can intelligent, adaptive systems learn to predict user needs and create custom security measures for them? To learn more and participate in the discussion, please join Gigaom Research and Qualcomm for “The future of security: from restrictive to cognitive,” a free analyst webinar on Tuesday, March 24, 2014, at 10 a.m. PT.

What will be discussed:

  • What are the most troublesome weaknesses in modern physical and online security architectures?
  • What are the implications of the IoT on security?
  • What are the most exciting advances in sensors and cognitive technologies, such as, machine learning, and computer vision, and how will they affect security in the coming years?
  • How can we make authentication more convenient, while still being secure?
  • How can we make progress on zero-day protection?
  • How can we protect user privacy and security, while still enjoying next generation experiences?

Who should attend:
