The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly changing the way we look at everything. The advantages we gain with smart devices are driving us to new levels of convenience in healthcare, manufacturing and automation, but IoT also presents many security challenges. So how do we efficiently manage thousands of devices? How do we effectively deal with mutual authentication? How do we know what is trustworthy and what is not? And most of all, how do we do this at a massive scale? This panel will explore the IoT challenges that we face and the solutions that we can implement today for a more secure future.

The audience will learn:

  • How and why IoT is different than our classic, traditional IT environments
  • The current state of security and privacy in IoT and how it will impact individuals, homes, buildings, cities, states, and nations
  • What the future holds for security and privacy in our ever-evolving IoT world
    • The need for standards
    • Medical devices
    • Home automation
    • Connected cars
    • Smart cities

HERE ARE SOME ADDITIONAL ANSWERS TO COMMENTS AND QUESTIONS RAISED DURING THE WEBINAR FOR WHICH WE WERE UNABLE TO ADDRESS DURING THE LIVE SESSION
 

Question: What do you think Automotive Manufacturers <should> be focusing on, esp. when all of them are rushing towards implementing connected vehicle technology, autonomous technology and so on?

Corman: Bottom line...all systems fail...cars will be hacked. Are we prepared for failure? These 5 capacities will help us determine. As of this moment, no car company has all 5... #3 and 5 are the most technologically elusive for many more years. More details in this video.
