Watch live: Smart cybersecurity for smart homes

How can our connected homes stay safe and secure? Join a panel discussion with Passcode and the Atlantic Council's Cyber Statecraft Initiative on Thursday, March 31st.

Passcode is proud to serve as the sole media partner for the Cyber Risk series of events with the Atlantic Council's Cyber Statecraft Initiative. Please join us on Thursday, Mar. 31 from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. for a panel discussion with a group of prominent cybersecurity experts.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next step in the evolution of wireless networks. Analysts predict the IoT will double in size to nearly 50 billion devices by 2020, comprising a $1.7 trillion market. One of the greatest opportunities still lies ahead in the form of the "smart home."

This moderated panel discussion brings together the authors of the issue brief to explore the opportunities and risks of networked smart homes. It also offers recommendations for maximizing their value for homeowners while minimizing consumers' concerns, which may prevent or delay the smart home segment from achieving its market potential.
