The Hidden Threats of Weak IoT Security within the Enterprise

IoT Security Theatre

Wed 18th Oct 10:10 to 10:40

Most enterprises have Internet of Things (IoT) deployments, whether for data monitoring, supply chain, facility management, or manufacturing processes. Unfortunately, many don’t realize how extensive these deployments actually are—or the attack surface they represent. In fact, IoT deployments have a higher number of security breaches, with costlier consequences, than traditional enterprise breaches. This presentation will describe the current state of IoT security, provide insight into attack methods, and identify unique challenges of securing IoT deployments. Attendees will also receive suggested best practices for securing new IoT deployments, increasing system layer security, or enhancing security in production deployments.

What you will take away from this session

  • Why IoT deployments are challenging to secure
  • Common IoT attack surfaces and associated vulnerabilities
  • Favorite tactics for IoT cyber attackers
  • Tips and best practices for securing your IoT deployments
