The Future of cybersecurity

Can your fridge talk to your toaster? If so, what cybersecurity issues should you worry about?
 
Sensors on your wrist, in your shoes, and soon, in your clothes. Businesses are adopting the use of sensors to track just about everything: trucks on delivery routes, location of packages, even how hot your pizza is when it’s delivered to your door.  What’s real about the Internet of Things (IOT) and what’s hype? What security issues does this expanding world of IOT present? 

The transmission of wireless data creates ample opportunities for cyberattacks. According to Forbes, the cost of data breaches will reach $2.1 trillion globally by 2019. Being aware of the risks and steps you can take to secure your data will become more important as the IOT landscape expands dramatically over the next few years.  In this session, we will talk about what’s real and what’s hype in the IOT landscape and then address the important issue of cybersecurity in this hyper-connected world.
