The  Amphion Forum is different because of its interdisciplinary nature. The “Internet of Things” consists of industries that, up until now, haven’t interacted much. Grid companies didn’t confer with medical equipment makers. Consumer electronics companies didn’t share ideas with industrial automation companies. Only at Amphion do device security experts from different industries mix to share solutions and best practices they’ve discovered. We all have different pieces of the puzzle.

The Amphion Forum is an exclusive, interdisciplinary, and intense event which brings together thought leaders from academia, business, government and technology to discuss the threats and opportunities presented by the unprecedented proliferation of connected devices.

Wondering why we call it “the Amphion Forum”? We think the name resonates with the “emerging intelligence” of the everyday objects around us. You see, in Greek mythology, Amphion was the son of Zeus & Antiope. When the city of Thebes needed protection, Amphion’s brother Zethus started hauling rocks to build a wall. Amphion had a better idea. Amphion has a magical lyre, and with it he charmed the rocks and stones around him with his music, and made them “smart”. Thereafter the stones did his bidding, assembling themselves into the massive fortifications that protected the kingdom and treasures of ancient Thebes.
