SVP of Marketing Steve Christian Speaks About the Benefits of Security and Analytics Across All Connected Devices

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Dec 29, 2015) - CES 2016 -- Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, today announced that its SVP of Marketing Steve Christian will be featured as a speaker at the CONNECTIONS™ Summit: IoT, Entertainment and the Connected Consumer during CES 2016. He will be participating in an interactive panel session entitled, Personalized and Big Data: Securing Consumer Privacy, on Wednesday, January 6th.

CONNECTIONS Summit, held at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, features groundbreaking research and expert analysis on connected devices and IoT, data privacy and security, monetization strategies, and partnerships and technology integration for IoT products and services. The event also offers networking opportunities with the leading analysts and senior executives in the connected home and IoT industries.

The interactive panel session, moderated by Parks Associates Research Analyst Brad Russell, examines trends in personalization, including privacy and security concerns and strategies to balance connected solutions with regulatory limits and consumer concerns. Christian will showcase developments in securely compiling user behavior and network performance data and will share how this data can be presented in a meaningful way to service providers. He will also address the importance of developing a comprehensive security strategy that accommodates the rapid pace of change in regulatory environments around the globe. Christian will be joined by executives from Intel Security, Zubie, Cisco, NXP Semiconductors and Facebook.

"The most important next step to get consumers engaged and participating in connected services is to establish a more compelling and user-friendly value proposition for data harvesting and curation," said Christian. "They deserve to be offered, in any application, a clear line of sight between the data they contribute and the benefits received. This needs to include assurances about the responsible security of such data."

The panel will take place on January 6th, 3:45-5:00 p.m. at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. The CONNECTIONS Summit agenda includes nine executive sessions and a networking-and-cocktails reception on the first day of CES. The sessions, moderated by Parks Associates analysts, will feature new research on emerging areas significant to the future of the connected home, including OTT video, wearables, IoT, tech support and other related topics.
