Hidden Dangers in a Connected World: Webinar on IoT Security Debunks the “We Aren’t That Connected” Myth

June 6, 2018

WILMINGTON, Mass., June 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Security Innovation, a pioneer in software security assessment and training, today announced that on Tuesday, June 12 at 2:00 p.m. U.S. Eastern time, the company will provide a complimentary webinar on IoT security. As organizations migrate from a primarily offline to online business model, they frequently fail to consider IoT’s unique threats, which traditional solutions are unable to secure. In today’s connected world steps must be taken to ensure that devices, connections and infrastructures are hardened, especially the software that runs IoT devices, which is the target of approximately 90 percent of cyber attacks.

The webcast, “ IoT Security: Debunking the ‘We aren’t THAT CONNECTED’ Myth,” is part of the company’s ongoing educational programing for risk, technology and security professionals.

“Organizations often fail to mitigate unique IoT threats which results in a massive attack surface for hackers,” says Ed Adams, the president and CEO of Security Innovation. “While traditional attacks result in data and financial theft, attacks on IoT devices can expose consumers to safety issues when hackers take control of automobiles, make remote changes to medical devices, compromise energy plants, conduct other nefarious acts, and more. Security teams need to step up to meet this challenge.”

Webinar overview:

Security Innovation will share expertise gained through securing a wide range of IoT products, including factory automation equipment, robotics, medical devices, SmartHome systems and locks, cryptocurrency wallets, breathalyzers, cement trucks, PoS devices, satellites, automobiles, motorcycles and more.
