The Internet of Things (IoT) holds enormous promise.
First, there’s the promise to have an even greater impact than the launch of the internet, providing universal connectivity and ongoing innovation from real-time data. We’re already seeing this in action.
Second, is the promise of even greater security than traditional IT environments, where humans and manual processes are typically the weakest link. We still have progress to make on this front.
We’ve now learned that breaches within machine-controlled networks are exponentially more disruptive, opening the door for device misuse, data compromise, and a host of other destructive actions.
But the promise of greater security is still viable. It requires us to learn from past experiences and build a solid foundation across the IoT ecosystem that prioritizes security from the very beginning. Here’s a look at what’s at stake.
