How loT is Changing Privacy and Security

December 11, 2018

The Internet of Things (IoT) has positively exploded into our daily lives. We see IoT devices everywhere, from our workplace to our homes. You know that a technology will become ubiquitous when it makes the headlines and IoT has done that, over and over again.

IoT has been slated for worries over surveillance and tracking, as devices like Amazon Echo have attested. However, it can be a technology for good.  To make the most of what can be empowering technology, we need to make sure that the technology is optimized to do its job, but not expose our information. But with the IoT, we need to ensure that not just anyone can steal our data. IoT devices generate lots of personal data. They also, generally, are custodians of other Personally Identifiable Information (PII) like name, address, passwords, and even location.

This webinar discusses the history, challenges, benefits and 5 tips to help keep the risk of leaked or stolen information to a minimum.
