For our November MeetUp, we're welcoming Darryl Scott Jones, the Director of Product Management for IoT and Open Banking Solutions at the firm ForgeRock.

Abstract: In the great Internet of Things gold rush, early adopters have largely left behind identity and access management. As a result, many organizations are scrambling to deal with the consequences as the IoT is vulnerable to hacks that can give malicious actors control over connected devices.

Darryl will discuss the concept of Identity Management for the Internet of Things and why it makes sense to treat IoT devices as first-class citizens with the same identity capabilities as users.

Given the complex relationships between people, devices and services, the only sustainable and secure method for delivering real end user or operational value from device-led solutions is to through persistent identity across all touch points.

Darryl will discuss:

· Why the IoT needs identity and access management
· The basics of an IoT ready IAM solution
· How identity can support customer and industrial IoT use cases
· How to deploy a secure IoT architecture that includes identity intelligence
