As companies battle the challenges of tech-savvy competitors and fully leveraging their ever-growing sea of data, they need to power their own innovation. That can be achieved by fostering a development culture that embraces agility and experimentation. In Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass the Red Queen said, “It takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place.” This is what many companies are feeling today as they try to innovate at a faster pace to keep up with competitors who are embracing new technologies to manage customer expectations.

Future ‘smart walls’ key to IoT

Article | February 10, 2020

IoT equipment designers shooting for efficiency should explore the potential for using buildings as antennas, researchers say. Environmental surfaces such as walls can be used to intercept and beam signals, which can increase reliability and data throughput for devices, according to MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL).Researchers at CSAIL have been working on a smart-surface repeating antenna array called RFocus. The antennas, which could be applied in sheets like wallpaper, are designed to be incorporated into office spaces and factories. Radios that broadcast signals could then become smaller and less power intensive.

IoT Security: Inherent Risks Require Robust Solutions

Article | February 25, 2020

IoT technologies offer many remarkable benefits. They can make complicated tasks, such as tracking a fleet of thousands of vehicles, monitoring and adjusting manufacturing processes or automating a smart home or office simpler, easier and more cost-effective than ever before. By inviting IoT devices into our homes, workplaces and public spaces, however, we also expose new attack surfaces. When we assign an IoT system to be responsible for a critical task or trust it to monitor sensitive information in our most private spaces, we want to ensure that the system can be trusted. For this reason, it is vital that security best practices are applied at all stages when developing an IoT solution.

What Is IoT Forensics? Challenges Ahead and Best Tools to Use

Article | May 24, 2021

Internet of Things, generally known as IoT, is a network of objects or things. Embedded sensors help connect and exchange data with other objects via the internet. IoT is often related to the concept of smart homes, including devices like home security systems, cameras, lighting, refrigerators, etc. With all this data being transmitted over the internet, it is easy for the data to be modified, deleted, or stolen, which can lead to an invasion, theft, etc. IoT forensics plays a vital role in maintaining the integrity and security of the data being transmitted. Join us as we explore this fascinating web of devices and how you can get started in this vibrant field of forensics.

5 Ways to Secure Your IoT Devices—Before They Get Hacked

Article | March 13, 2020

Internet of Things (IoT) devices make our lives more efficient and our day-to-day more convenient. They allow us to monitor our homes from afar, control our lights, thermostats, and locks and beef up the security of our homes—among a host of other things. But because smart devices have become so integrated into our lives, they leave us vulnerable to cybercrime too. In general, IoT devices have little to no built-in security, making them top targets for hackers. And since most IoT devices are interconnected, it puts your whole suite of devices at risk if even one gets hacked. Just as you lock your front door before you go to bed, you’ll want to make sure your IoT devices are secure before you start using them.
