Next stop: IBcon 2016

June 20, 2016

Held right here in Silicon Valley, the epicenter of technology and innovation, Nation-E is is heading to the 2016 Intelligent Buildings Conference (IBcon)! Widely renowned, this conference has quickly grown to lead the discussion on smart, connected, high-performance, green, sustainable, intelligent buildings, and is an open conversation on the smart buildings of tomorrow.

From June 21-24, 2016, we’ll be at the San Jose Convention Center showcasing our innovative products while our chief executive officer, Idan Udi Edry, will speak to share his insights on the cybersecurity solutions available to the commercial, corporate, government and institutional real estate industry. 

Edry will take the stage as guest speaker on June 22, in a can’t-miss discussion: “Defining a Smart Building Cyber Strategy”. Joining industry experts, the panelists will highlight the need to develop a complete, comprehensive and well thought out cyber strategy, and dive into the challenges of securing building systems. Held from 4:45-5:45 p.m., you can catch this discussion in the conference’s Lower Level LL20C panel space.

“In recent years, the Smart Building industry has continued to advance at a rapid pace. Technological improvements have increased efficiency and lowered costs for building owners and operators, leading to greater demand and a high adoption rate of smart technologies,” says Edry. “However, this transition from operational technology to intelligent technology makes a company’s critical infrastructure highly vulnerable to a cyber-attack. There are many steps Business Management System developers need to take in order to successfully implement smart technologies into their current systems, while protecting and defending against cyber threats. This is what I hope to explain and expand on at this year’s conference.”

IBcon brings together visionary experts from around the globe to discuss the latest technologies and present the world's most advanced, next generation smart building case studies. This is our first time sponsoring and participating at IBcon, and we’re excited to join the conversation at this year’s event.
