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 →
Today we live in an age of data breaches. But is there hope of a more secure future around the corner? Not according to the latest industry estimates, which claim that the number of compromised records globally will jump an astonishing 175% over the next five years. With no let up in the relentless targeting of corporate IT systems, we need to look to new technologies to help steer a path to a more resilient online world. But how?
To find out more, join some of the world’s leading cybersecurity experts at this year’s highly anticipated CLOUDSEC event in London next month, where the theme is Freedom to Connect: Mind Versus Machine. Continue reading →
IoT security is new frontline in the battle against enterprise cyber-threats. As more smart endpoints are connected to corporate networks, the potential for mass data theft, service outages, sabotage and more will only increase. Yet new Trend Micro research reveals that only half (53%) of IT and security decision makers regard IoT as a security risk. This is a major miscalculation that could cost their organisations dear in the long run.
You need to start planning now for ways to mitigate the new risks presented by IoT technologies. Our annual CLOUDSEC show in September will also provide some much-needed best practice advice in this area. Continue reading →
The Internet of Things (IoT) offers tremendous value to organisations, their customers and employees, driving business agility, productivity, cost reductions and much more. That’s why the total number of connected things is predicted to top 20 billion by 2020. Unfortunately, this IoT explosion also creates unique opportunities for cybercriminals. Of these, attacks which impact the physical world are arguably the most serious, potentially leading to costly service disruption and even loss of life.
That’s why we’ll be sharing some key best practice tips with attendees at Infosecurity Europe next month on how organisations can mitigate the risks of IoT-powered cyber-physical attacks. Continue reading →
