The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next frontier for security practitioners and the rules are still being written. In each episode of this podcast series, “Five Indisputable Facts about IoT Security,” the IBM experts will examine one fact that should be considered when building and deploying IoT devices. The purpose of the series, and the accompanying infographic, is to help end users and manufacturers understand how to increase security and protect data in the IoT.
Listen now for the complete insights from our featured panel of IBMers: Diana Kelley, global executive security advisor; Tim Hahn, chief architect of Internet of Things Security; Andras Szakal, VP and CTO for U.S. Federal; and James Murphy, offering manager for Watson IoT Platform.
This episode looks at Indisputable IoT Security Fact #5:
As Data Accumulates, Exposure Issues Will Increase
IoT devices are quietly and constantly collecting massive amounts of personal and sensitive data, from audio recordings to GPS locations to heart rate readings. Indeed, one of the key business drivers for IoT is the data that is generated from devices and solutions.
But if all this data is not managed, secured and eventually destroyed, the results may lead to loss of privacy and serious issues of data ownership — all of which increase the importance of partnering with IoT vendors and solution providers who can be trusted with your data.
