ABU DHABI, UAE and DUBAI and RESTON, Virginia: PRNewswire: DarkMatter, an international cyber security firm headquartered in the UAE, announces its presence at the IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things (IoT) conference, taking place between 12 – 14 December 2016 in Washington DC, in the USA.

Dr. David Kravitz, DarkMatter’s Vice President of Crypto Research Systems, is set to deliver a keynote address on Blockchain  Compatible Identity & Access Management for IoT. David is also going to chair a workshop on IoT Security and Privacy – Architectures & Deployments, and participate in a further workshop on User centric security, privacy and interoperability in the context of Internet of Things and Smart Cities.

This third instalment of the IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things event offers an opportunity for industry leaders, academics and decision making government officials to meet and discuss critical success factors for the interconnected cyber environment.

The event is designed to examine key innovations across technologies, which will alter the research and application space of the future. IoT envisions a highly networked environment, where every object is integrated to interact with each other.

Dr. Najwa Aaraj, DarkMatter’s Senior Vice President of Special Projects commented, This is an important event, and we are pleased to be supporting it and having a strong presence over its three days. Our work in the areas of blockchain and other fundamental cyber security-related projects, which are all aimed at making cyber space more trusted and secure, are gaining significant momentum. We view IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things as a prime opportunity to interact with a range of stakeholders, exchangeinformation, and build strategic relationships.

Public-private partnerships have been highly effective in addressing problems associated with large physical infrastructure projects, and there is overwhelming evidence that their use should be extended to the implementation of cyber security projects. Events such as IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things allows stakeholders from public sector as well as private sector representatives to come together with the view to developing winning partnerships.

Topics to be addressed at the event include Best Practices in Industrial IoT Cybersecurity Industry Forum; IoT Governance in the USA – Policy Challenges and Issues Industry Forum; IoT: a great opportunity for emerging economies? Industry Forum; and IPv6-based IoT Deployment Around the World Industry Forum among others.
