Unintended Consequences of the IoT
The number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices will surpass the number of people on the planet by the end of the year. These devices can potentially provide a direct conduit to some very private and valuable information in your company. In our rush to connect everything, security and privacy are often afterthoughts. Is it possible to instill sound SDL (security development lifecycle) techniques into IoT device manufacturing and maintenance? Practices are improving and more refinements are on the way, but hope, as they say, is not a strategy. Several gatekeeper onboarding solutions exist for brokering the relationship between enterprise and device, implementing connectivity in controlled phases, and managing patch levels and authentication. Join us as we attempt to help you say: "Yes, you can connect now. We've got this covered."
