Abu Dhabi, 28 February 2019:  The Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) is set to host the 25th annual Special Libraries Association - Arabian Gulf Chapter (SLA-AGC) Conference & Exhibition, under the theme ‘The Internet of Things: The Future of Connected Internet Societies’, from 5 - 7 March at the Dusit Thani Hotel, Abu Dhabi.

The conference will also tackle key topics including ‘Information Security’, ‘Privacy’, ‘Legislations and Regulations’, ‘Application’, ‘Knowledge Management’ and ‘Standards’. 

The ‘Information Security’ session will cover data confidentiality, verification, controlled access, and the role of technical and operational standards in developing and setting safe Internet of Things (IoT) devices while ‘Privacy’ will address the adoption and localisation of IoT devices for users.

The ‘Standards’ session will shed light on the general outlook of IoT devices and applications within a wide range of industries.
