Summary: Individuals, companies, and countries have suffered great harm resulting from unnecessarily weak computer and internet security. The sheer number of potential Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices implies that, if not defended effectively, the IoT has the potential to permit even greater harm. Much of this potential harm is preventable by enforcing a few simple rules. Attend this webinar to learn about IoT security guidelines and best practices that can be used as a basis for future standards, certifications, laws, policies, and/or product ratings.
