HSD is endorsing partner of NRC Live ‘The smart society’ on the impact of the Internet of Things (IoT), which will take place on 13 April in Rotterdam. The event focusses on how we can take the next step in our connected world of smart cities, smart houses and smart industry. And the many opportunities offered by the digital transformation of business and society.


During this event Max Remerie, Innovation Liason at HSD, and Elsine van Os from Signpost Six will explain how The Internet of Things can improve daily live but also how it makes us vulnerable.


IoT offers many opportunities and solutions for various domains, such as energy and environment, safety, health, industry, retail and public space. But the development of IoT and the openness of the internet also make us vulnerable. Cyber crime, cyber terrorism and cyber war can impact our infrastructure.


Max Remerie will explain more about the possibilities of a National Cyber Testbed, where the digital security of critical infrastructure can be tested and improved. Here organisations can test and defend themselves against the dangers of the Internet of Things, but it also offers new business opportunities.


According to HSD partner Elsine van Os "The Human Mind is the New Battleground in Cybersecurity ….and we're not ready". Read her opinion here (in Dutch)
