IoT Peer2Peer – January 2020

January 3 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

The Silicon Halton IoT Peer2Peer is focused on helping members collaborate, share, and learn how IoT is changing industry, and how they can benefit in taking their solutions / products to market.  Check out our past events.

This month’s discussion topic:  Security in IoT

IoT cyber attacks happen, and is increasing with the birth of new devices and accessibility of legacy devices. Many companies use a large number of different devices running different software, using different chips, and may use different connectivity methods. Some devices were designed before IoT existed and never were hardened to mitigate vulnerabilities. Many devices are inexpensive or not designed with IoT Security in mind.

In this session, we will evaluate IoT security, learn the likely threats, understand risks, evaluate strategies and the consequences of threats to IoT infrastructure. IoT security design is complex and we will discuss the different broad range of approaches and considerations.

Participants will also be given an IoT security whitepaper to evaluate your own IoT Security.
