    The Hidden Threats of Weak IoT Security within the Enterprise

    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.
