Securing IoT: Think Outside the Wall

25 October 2016 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM (UTC)
Washington, D.C., United States

Most of the devices in the Internet of Things (IoT) reside outside of your security wall. Some, such as mobile point-of-sale terminals and other publicly accessible devices, are outside because they could be a gateway for malicious attacks. Others, such as sensors and remote monitors, may be too distant to include inside. And some, such as medical devices and other specialized tools, may be outside of IT’s sphere. However, all of these devices still need to be protected. With little or no local storage, IoT devices are heavily dependent on communications, so securing the communications path is as important as hardening the device. This session will explore how protecting the IoT is not like protecting a data center. Securing the IoT requires looking at the whole ecosystem, not just individual points and devices.
