09:15 Keynote: Managing IoT Data as Enterprise Information Assets: A Digital Trust & Governance Supply Chain Approach

Presenter: Bassam Zarkout/IGnPower

Organizations face pressure to adapt to changing market conditions and digital technologies. Digital transformation empowers them to leverage technologies such as IoT, AI and Digital Twins, which generate significant economic value. However, widespread adoption of these technologies also lead to a surge in data volumes, requiring protection and governance as valuable Enterprise Information Assets. This presentation explores the symbiotic relationship between digital transformation and IoT systems, advocating for a "Digital Trust & Governance Supply Chain" that covers compliance, policies, legal defensibility and lifecycle management of IoT data.

Presenter: Dawn Tilbury/University of Michigan, Gordon Shao/NIST

Advancesin computing and networking technologies have enabled massive amounts of datato be collected from manufacturing plant floors, and stored either locally orin the cloud.  Although data quality remains an important challenge,Digital Twins enable this data to be used, together with models ofmanufacturing processes, to create useful information and advise humanoperators on recommended actions.  Standards for Digital Twins areemerging, and there are opportunities to create different types of DigitalTwins that can best utilize the data that exists.  In this talk, we willpresent a requirements framework for Digital Twins in the manufacturing domain,including the important properties of re-usability, interoperability, interchangeability, extensibility andmaintainability. Several examples of digital twins that we have created will bepresented, with potential outcomes of reduced costs and improvedproductivity.  Future challenges and opportunities in the area ofDigital Twins for manufacturing systems will also be discussed.

14:30 Security and Trust WG – Zero-Trust in the Supply Chain

Presenter: Bob Martin/MITRE

 This session will discuss the ways that IoT can help bring evidence-based trust to the manufacturing and production activities and service offerings of many industries.  Most industries have well-developed quality, safety, and security norms for the products and services related to their industry. However, almost none have a practical, scalable, and data driven method for communicating adherence to those norms as a normal part of their interactions with customers and users of their systems as someone decides on whether to accept a product or service. With the rise in interest in implementing zero-trust architectures, the ability to bring sufficient data to decisions about the trustworthiness of products and services is one many are looking for.
