Next Month Meeting Details:

  • Topic:  IoT – The Internet of Things
  • Sponsor (food & drink):  Novacoast
  • Facilitator:  Jeff Hudgens


The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the ever-growing network of physical objects that feature an IP address for internet connectivity, and the communication that occurs between these objects and other Internet-enabled devices and systems.

The number of Internet-connected devices is growing rapidly and is expected to reach 50 billion by 2020. However innovative and promising it seems, this so-called Internet of Things (IoT) phenomenon significantly increases the number of security risks businesses and consumers will inevitably face.

Jeff is an information security professional with CISSP, CRISC, PMP, and ITIL® certifications. His passions are working in team settings, analyzing information security trends, developing strategies, and implementing solutions. Delivering positive results are my commitment. Do it right the first time, and give more than what is expected.

Come prepared with your experiences, questions, and your security concerns that you wish to bring before a host of like-minded security professionals.
