IoT: Internet of Things, or Internet of Threats?

Cloud, Mobile & IAM Theatre

Wed 17th Oct 10:50 to 11:20

With the global IoT opportunity predicted to reach nearly $9T by 2020, organizations are under extreme pressure to evaluate IoT and digitation initiatives that can deliver unprecedented customer outcomes and efficiencies.  Move too slow, and be left behind.  Move too fast, neglecting the unique cybersecurity risks IoT devices introduce, and be hit with a crippling security breach.  In this session, Paul will explore how the exponential increase in cyberattacks on IoT and digital assets is forcing the entire cybersecurity industry to evolve, and how this evolution will reshape the way organizations defend against large-scale, coordinated attacks on digital and IoT assets.

What you will take away from this session

  • Why are organizations under extreme pressure to embark on IoT and digitization initiatives?
  • What unique cybersecurity challenges do IoT and digitation strategies introduce?
  • How have private sector cybersecurity companies responded, and is it enough?
  • What steps should organizations take to defend against large-scale, coordinated attacks on digital and IoT assets?
