The End of the Beginning
After 3+ years of hype, where are we now with Internet of Things security, and where are we going?
There is continuing pressure to keep our business “things” secure and breach-free. With crashes and attacks now being reported regularly for autonomous vehicles, expanded healthcare services, and manufacturing shop floors, these challenges will only increase as IoT systems become more ubiquitous. In a hyper-speed world, this is steadily changing the game for security.
Digital is Still Here…and Going Faster
While it does not seem to have gained the same level of interest from the security community, “digitizing” your business has executives spending significant money for not only improving operations, but fundamentally changing businesses and business models. It’s creative destruction on steroids, and it’s coming at you.
Industrial IoT Hits Many Industries – Not Just Manufacturing
Which industries are most at risk and have shown the most interest in the space so far? The desire for improved costs and connectivity into every stage of a lifecycle has been most prevalent in these industries:
- Retail supply chain
- Critical Industries (Utilities, etc.)
Do You Know What You Don’t Know?
Innovation and progress are hitting us faster than at any other time in history. These challenges are very different than traditional IT has encountered and are disrupting decades old processes. You must know what’s possible and what you’re going to do and not do. One thing is certain: Security problems are emphatically business problems.
Join us for the keys to tackling the business alignment needed in today’s environment.
