Securing the Internet of Things: What the CEO needs to know

  • The Internet of Things is powerful, but brings with it thousands of potential new security vulnerabilities.

  • To stay on top of new threats, security needs to sit at the top of your IoT agenda.

  • Security must be continuously led from the top, throughout the entire lifecycle of your IoT initiatives and solutions.

Organizations across all industries have been eager to embrace the Internet of Things. It offers exciting benefits and gives companies the visibility they need to make huge process improvements and drive efficiency and productivity across the enterprise. But, in the rush to start using IoT technology to drive competitive advantage, many companies have overlooked one seriously significant part of the IoT puzzle—security.

A massive 85 percent of companies are already considering, exploring, or implementing an Internet of Things strategy, yet only 68 percent plan to invest in IoT security this year. Every new device and sensor deployed is another vulnerability to manage, and those failing to manage security proactively face potentially costly cybersecurity breaches.

Join us for a live webinar on March 15 and hear from CSO’s Bob Bragdon and Jason Porter of AT&T as they explore the growing challenges of IoT security, and take a detailed look at how CEOs can lead it from the top. They’ll share best practices, advice, and more to help you take control of the Internet of Things and keep your organization’s IoT initiatives secure, both now and long into the future.

Don’t miss this chance to see why a proactive, CEO-driven approach to security is essential for IoT success.
