Securing your IoT architecture

IoT is one of the biggest new developments in IT, with growth expected to reach billions of devices in the short term. There is, however, a major gap in understanding of security for IoT. Many first-wave IoT systems are showing significant security weaknesses and security is often recognized as one of the key blockers to successful IoT deployments. This presentation will provide guidance on the following:

  • Meeting the security challenges of an 'extended enterprise' construct – connected devices and systems which now form part of an organisation's infrastructure
  • What is the potential impact of a breach/failure on the business?
  • How is security being built into the back-end of IoT systems and devices?
  • Designing an end-to-end enterprise architecture to ensure the security of your IoT deployment
