Webinar: The Invisible Threat – Mitigating Risks to Secure the IoT and Our Connected Future

Navigation

Start:
December 14, 2017 @ 3:00 pm
End:
December 14, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

Recent headline-grabbing cybersecurity attacks, such as the ‘Reaper’ Botnet and the ‘KRACK’ WiFi vulnerability, have shown that hackers pose a serious threat to companies and that many services remain vulnerable. While the global cost of cybersecurity crime is estimated to reach $USD 6 trillion annually by 2021 (Cybersecurity Ventures, 2017), these security issues will not only result in costly remediation and destroyed reputations, they also pose a risk to our connected future: without security, the Internet of Things will cease to exist.

To enable a secure market, IoT solution providers must avoid short cuts and embed security at every stage of the IoT value chain to allow the market to scale. In this webinar, find out how to meet this challenge and hear directly from leading industry experts who will discuss:

  • Examples of cybersecurity breaches
  • The unique security challenges of the IoT
  • Best practice for the secure end-to-end design, development and deployment of IoT solutions
  • Frameworks to evaluate IoT security measures to identify and mitigate potential vulnerabilities
  • How to leverage the Embedded SIM for enhanced IoT security
