As billions of everyday objects become hyper-connected and always on, the Internet of Things will create trillions in new economic value. Companies that understand this future will be better positioned to capture their share of this value.

Returning to New York after a series of European presentations in London, Berlin and Paris, acclaimed keynote speaker and futurist Greg Verdino will address members of the Contingency Planning Exchange (CPE) at the association's Long Island Chapter meeting on April 11, 2014. His talk entitled "The HyperNetworked Now" will cover emerging trends in technology and their impact on business, society and individuals. The event, which will be hosted by CA Technologies at its global headquarters in Islandia NY, is free for both CPE members and non-members. Interested attendees can learn more or register on the CPE website.

The Contingency Planning Exchange aims to provide its members with innovative strategies, tools and forums to advance the practice of business continuity and crisis management. Verdino was a natural choice for the inaugural meeting of the association's revitalized Long Island Chapter. His eye opening, thought provoking presentation on The HyperNetworked Now will focus on the Internet of Things and how its adoption by enterprises will create new opportunities while presenting key challenges related to security, privacy, ethics and corporate responsibility. He will also consider the business and societal implications of big data, cloud computing, social networking and global-mobile ecosystems. You can read his thoughts on some of these topics here and here; and watch a previous speech from last year's xPotomac conference here.
