The Government IoT Summit
“The internet of things has the potential to have a greater impact on society than the first digital revolution.” – Sir Mark Walport, Government Chief Scientific Adviser
The internet of things has the potential to transform the way the Government approaches some of the biggest challenges facing the UK.
IoT has near limitless applications, from gathering vast amounts of data to creating more responsive public services. But despite the enormous potential, the public sector has fallen behind private business when it comes to making the most of this new technology.
A lack of investment and leadership and inadequate digital infrastructure systems are often cited as the major barriers preventing the public sector from embracing IoT. The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation will also mean stricter controls on the way devices share sensitive information. Recent cyber-attacks have underlined the need for robust cyber security and greater privacy protection.
Join us for The Government IoT Summit where leading experts from across the technology sector will explain how the internet of things will shape the future of Government services.
