The Coming Storm from IoT
Everyone’s focusing on the Internet of Things (IoT) … but who is securing it for the enterprise and how are they doing that? With multiplication of devices, fragmentation of standards and the global nature of production, IoT stands to dethrone the traditional calculus of risk. Even as technology has granted vast increases in efficiency, incredible benefits to health and services and created entire new categories of products, it intertwines and lays low the barriers to maleficence. The ease of disruption and chaos to business and services is precisely why cyber risks have elevated to this critical stage. Learn how we fortify and mitigate the coming challenges of IoT from the best security minds in the areas that are the pillars of civilization now and all that is to come – healthcare, supply chain, telecom, energy, etc.
