IoT Vulnerabilities Are Evolving, and So Must Security

By Ken Briodagh January 19, 2018

The Spectre and Meltdown disclosures have been consuming the security conversations throughout the technological industries over the past few weeks, and the IoT will not be immune to the effects.

ARM CEO Simon Segars recently spoke about security issues like these and next week’s IoT Security 4.0 conference will be addressing these security issues and others facing the IoT, IIoT and connected industries with the help of keynoters like Rhonda Dirvin, Director, IoT and Embedded, ARM , and Gary Davis, Chief Consumer Security Evangelist, McAfee.

Other topics to be covered as part of the IoT Security 4.0 event include:

  • Advances at the silica level that minimize opportunities for human error
  • Benefits from adoption of session layer and software-defined systems that isolate and target specific devices to avoid attacks
  • Block chain and other identity management strategies that can keep documentation and systems monitoring current
  • Understanding the safeguards that device OEMs are building into IoT devices
  • How to protect yourself against toolkits that go after devices, routers and gateways

Of course the collocated IoT Evolution Expo, also taking place January 22 to 25 at the Disney Contemporary Resort in Orlando, Florida, will also feature security-heavy content, including the opportunity to earn an accredited IoT security certification by studying topics like video surveillance, regulatory rules and device security during the event.

To join in and take part in these important security conversations, register now for the IoT Evolution Expo and IoT Security 4.0 events.
