Chris Greco, Senior Director Solutions Development at BlackBerry, will present “The Intersection of the Connected Worker and the Internet of Things” on Tuesday, October 24, during Cyber Security Summit 2017 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Today, the smartphone is the primary communication and computing device for many consumers. This dependency on mobile devices will translate into a majority of enterprise computing outside of traditional PC computing. This will have the greatest impact with on campus (non-office-based) and off-campus mobile workers who are becoming increasingly connected by rich real-time communications powered by mobile applications running on wearable devices such as smart glasses.

The rise of IoT in the enterprise, or the Enterprise of Things, will allow these workers to instantly connect with assets in the field to gain immediate understanding of the situation around them.

Greco’s session will explore the impact that these connected workers and endpoints will have on your enterprise and its ability to drive growth. Attendees will also learn security concerns that come with these new tools and how best to address them.

Greco is the Senior Director of Solutions Development at BlackBerry  and has 15 years of industry experience and currently leads the enterprise technical product management team and the enterprise security certifications team at BlackBerry with a focus on enterprise software and mobility.

Over the years, Greco has worked with governments on implementing secure software solutions and security certifications and assurances like NIAP, Common Criteria, FedRAMP.

Cyber Security Summit is a public-private collaboration with support from industry, government, and university leaders who gather to discuss security trends and solutions.
