A study by HPE’s security unit found that 70 percent of popular consumer IoT devices are easily hackable. Many of the simplest IoT (or machine-to-machine) devices lack adequate processing power and storage to host endpoint security software. As a result, attackers can exploit vulnerabilities in consumer devices and mobile applications to gain remote access to internal networks and expose users to man-in-the-middle attacks.
So can traditional PC security solutions work effectively with embedded devices? With real-time sensor and device data streaming into big data platforms for analytics, security concerns encompass loss of data and intellectual property, potential for physical harm, and risk to brand and reputation. And, right now, data privacy regulations such as the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are harmonizing legislation across regions and making a global impact. Reiner Kappenberger addresses architectural and developer concerns related to security and privacy: how homomorphic encryption enables nearly all computation to be done directly on encrypted data, how data can be anonymized and protected at scale today, how new standards are defining effective approaches, and how use cases are being transformed.
This session is sponsored by HPE Security – Data Security.
