The Internet of Things (IoT) conceptually refers to the dynamic networks that link physical objects with the virtual world via Internet connection, enabling “things” to sense, log, interpret and communicate information, as well as act autonomously or in cooperation with other devices, environments, and people. IoT connected objects’ computing power and connectivity may range from very limited to extensive, and types of sensors or data collection technology used will vary. The Internet currently connects anywhere from 10 billion to 16 billion objects;even so, more than 99 percent of the estimated 1.5 trillion things globally remain unconnected.By 2020, there may be anywhere from 26 billion to 50 billion globally connected objects.

Automotive Cyber Security: A Crash Course on Protecting Cars Against Hackers

Article | March 26, 2020

Modern cars have dozens of computers on board, and they’re not just for running GPS or playing music. Computers monitor and control nearly every system on your vehicle, including steering, brakes, and the engine itself. This is why automotive cyber security is essential. If a vehicle’s computer systems aren’t properly protected, hackers can steal data or even take control of the vehicle. As you can imagine, that makes automotive cyber security a major concern for consumers, auto companies, and OEMs alike. But what is there to know about automotive cyber security? We’ll explore what cybersecurity in the automotive industry entails and what the biggest threats are to automotive IoT and connected vehicles. We’ll also share some insights from a recent webinar by Sectigo and Mentor Graphics on how to protect connected vehicles from emerging cybersecurity threats.

Finding and Fixing Blind Spots in Enterprise IoT Security

Article | March 20, 2020

The Internet of Things has been a breakthrough, and adoption rates keep exploding. There are possibly over 20 billion IoT devices in the world, and by 2025, there may have been 75 billion. Even though there has been a rise in smart home devices, most IoT devices are found in businesses, industries, and healthcare. The benefits are overwhelming: from enabling automation of repetitive tasks (both simple and complex), to real-time data insights and analytics, IoT devices make workers more productive, improve customer experience, and reduce operating costs. However, with the many benefits of IoT devices come serious disadvantages, chief of which is security. Here are some reasons why IoT devices have such serious security risks:
