1:30 PM Overcoming Security Challenges Created by the Internet of Things

The sheer number of connected devices continues to grow and with it so do the security challenges. Powered by the convenience and benefits the Internet of Things (IoT) can deliver; the devices continue to permeate all aspects of enterprise and personal existence without necessarily concerns over potential consequences and related security and privacy concerns. Hackers continue to deploy sophisticated attack methodologies to bypass existing security measures. Common attacks include: ransomware, which prevents the legitimate user from accessing a device or network and malware which infects known device vulnerabilities.

  • Detecting real-time alerts about cyber attacks
  • Instilling proactive prevention including micro-segmentation of the enterprise network
