As we look forward to the Connected Plus / Big Data Toronto 2017 show, June 20-21, it’s not only a view into how new technologies can bring fantastic business benefits but how they can also bring considerable risk.
Internet of Things (IoT) innovations will drive enormous economic value by creating efficiencies, connecting people, places and things to new services, and providing invaluable insight with the data. McKinsey estimates IoT has a potential economic impact of $2.7 to $6.2 Trillion USD until 2025. IoT devices will also help generate a tremendous volume of data to feed Big Data solutions for better analysis. The issue for the industry today isn’t how to innovate with IoT, it’s more about how to accomplish this innovation without the associated security risks.
IoT hacks are dominating current cybersecurity news feeds. The reason these hacks are still happening is simple – we think of IoT as just a device (or device-maker’s) problem and not one requiring a more complete solution to protect the data wherever it travels or sits, authentication of the device, and administrative visibility to what’s going on. It’s clear a traditional IT security mindset won’t fix the problem either. IoT devices can live far beyond corporate firewalls in the great unknown wilderness with little or no compute power or limited battery life.
Eliminating security risk will accelerate adoption and early success of IoT and Big Data technologies. Doing it alone with a DIY approach isn’t a good one. CENTRI Internet of Things Advanced Security – IoTAS can help secure your innovation from chip to Cloud. We’ve got a lot to say about IoT security and can help you with your needs.
