The Internet of Things (IoT) is here, and growing, quickly. We all use IoT devices, including connected phones and devices in school and at home, connected healthcare devices, even connected vehicles.  But is it safe? What do we need to do to protect the students, citizens, devices and systems in the world of IoT? This panel, representing industry, government, research and academia, will discuss how ready we are to deliver Trust, Identity, Privacy, Protection, Safety and Security (TIPPSS) for the Internet of Things and how you can educate your students about living in and building a safer and more secure world leveraging the Internet of Things.

Practical security tips for students and educators will be presented as well as educational tips on TIPPSS for IoT. The discussion will touch upon leveraging existing initial curriculum from the National Cybersecurity Alliance's "Stop Think Connect" program as well as other efforts to allow students to explore private sector technology arenas. The panelists will share information about their book from 17 women authors around the planet entitled Women Securing the Future with TIPPSS for IoT.
