As organisations build out their Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure, cyber-risk must be properly managed. Unfortunately, the latest research from Trend Micro has found that security teams are still not being consulted in the majority of global enterprise projects. It’s a major mistake and one which could come back to bite firms if their IoT systems are not secured “by design and default” as required by the GDPR.

If there’s one thing attendees took away from the ever-popular Trend Micro CLOUDSEC conference this week, it’s that online threats are only going to continue escalating. Continue reading
