    Brandon Gaudet is a private security consultant that works closely with organizations both large and small, providing guidance on how to secure infrastructure and assets.

    Prior to entering into the private contracting world, Brandon was an assistant to the Georgia Tech Information Security Center (GTISC). In this role, he built and maintained servers and distributed systems in an environment that required close observance of security best practices. These requirements included resilience to attack by motivated and well-financed actors, as well as quarantine capabilities to contain malware samples researched by the supported labs. Through this experience Brandon has seen first-hand the effort required to successfully defend networks as well as the difficulties associated with such defensive efforts.

    Brandon has always had a passion for technology; a passion which led him to join his high school engineering program after moving from his original home in Canada to the United States. Brandon started college at the age of sixteen and switched his major from engineering to computer science after getting only a small taste of what the world of computer science had to offer. Brandon's interests were further honed when he started working in computer security during his time at GTISC, giving him the last push he needed to set on the path of helping secure the businesses and services relied upon by his country.

    Brandon is currently pursuing a Master of Science degree in Information Security at (expecting to graduate in the Fall of 2016) and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

    Internet of Things/Internet of Everything (IoT/IoE) Security

    Due to increasing number of connections, types of devices, and the faster mobile speeds and applications, IoT/IoE security becomes crucial. Gartner predicts that in 2020 there will be over 26 billion connected devices. Many fields, including medical, utility and transportation became dependent on IoT. What can happen if a pacemaker, a smart light bulb or a smart street signs is not secured? The presentation will show how people and technology can influence IoT security.
