Topic Abstract: Exploring the various businesses and technology that are internet enabled allows one to understand the ubiquity of IoT. Productivity climbs when there is more real time information and a larger aggregate of data that can be used to find inefficient processes. But we have learned, as security practitioners, that the internet is generally an insecure landscape. With breaches reported daily and a constant stream of attackers, these internet connected devices produce a target rich environment. Focusing on what has worked with more secure suppliers of internet connected devices and general security practices will help us develop a more secure connected world.
