IoT Next Club - Practical considerations to secure IoT services

About this event

"IoT Cyberattacks are the new normal, the security mindset is not."

The number of IoT threats doubled in 2018, growing from 19 to 38 within a single year and eight in ten organisations have experienced a cyber attack on their IoT secure system - 90% of those organisations registered a direct effect on their results.

IoT security has become the subject of scrutiny after this high-number of incidents where a common IoT device was used to infiltrate and attack the larger network.

The question arises: How to protect your IoT device?

IoT Next Club is constantly looking for opportunities to help our SME's and startups. On Friday 27th September we want to solve a number of doubts about the main challenges for companies working directly with IoT solutions and to find out the best way to protect your information, to prevent external and internal attacks and create strategies to mitigate these risks.

Join us on this session and get strategic insights from a specialist working in the field for almost twenty years!

Timing 11.00 BST / 12:00 CEST
