IoT is the set of technologies and practices designed to allow things – from FitBits and Google Home devices to corporate systems like asset trackers and badge readers – to communicate via the Internet. The goal is to enable the tracking, automation and understanding of “things” so that decision makers can gather more information, make better decisions, and control systems and platforms more easily, with more granularity, and at lower cost.

But IoT introduces a new and difficult problem for virtually every organization: a several order of magnitude increase in the things connected to the Internet creates a several order of magnitude increase in the ways that security vulnerabilities can be exploited by cyber criminals.

Join us for this discussion with Robert Fleming of Blacksquare Technologies as we explore issues to consider in the context of securing work-from-home and in-office environments from IoT.
