Smart, internet-enabled devices are growing at an exponential pace with wearable devices, kitchen appliances, connected cars and healthcare devices becoming commonplace, and expected to grow to 50 billion by 2020. In 2014, the Cisco Security Grand Challenge was launched to bring the security community together to address securing the Internet of Things (IoT).

In this presentation Kevin Fuller and Iain Ansell will discuss how to select appropriate partners, the challenges of working with a complex network of partners and how to successfully implement and manage that network.
