About the Presentation

Why does your business need to increase IoT Security?

IoT Security is critical to encourage adoption of the massive emergence of smart, connected devices

This session identifies 7 strategies to effectively increase the security of your IoT solution. We will discuss top strategies and implementation approaches for IoT vendors to build the trust and resilience needed to seize opportunities, reduce cyber risk, and deploy the right security models that reduce vulnerabilities.

Continuous management of IoT Security is critical for device vendors to remain in compliance and prevent cyberthreats from compromising their customers privacy and security.

  • IDC analysts predict that by 2018, two-thirds of enterprises will experience IoT security breaches
  • Cisco predicts that there will be 50B connected devices worldwide by 2020.

IoT is clearly impacting many parts of our lives, at home as well as many industry verticals (Manufacturing, Healthcare, Public Sector, Oil & Gas). Yet the question that continues to evolve is that while we need and desire many of the conveniences or downright cost savings that IoT devices make possible – How is security being addressed for this entire category of devices?

You’ll learn:

  • Why IoT introduces new challenges for security and risk management
  • How to implement low-cost security and risk management initiatives
  • What are top strategies and implementation approaches to reduce vulnerability and risk
  • Approaches for ensuring user privacy and managing the customer experience

This session will provide proven strategies needed to maintain cost-effective security and risk management initiatives to support and drive IoT vendor success.
