About the Theme:

This year's conference will focus on the risks and opportunities of a world in which everything is online and potentially accessible from anywhere in the world.
TVs, household appliances, garden plots, paper soda cups, even garbage cans are being attached to the Internet. In a world where most consumer and business devices are connected to the global Internet, new risks and new opportunities have emerged. The convenience of being able to control the temperature in our homes from our smartphones is the same means nation-state actors leveraged in manipulating the Inception Framework to use household devices as a proxy for their attacks
