The Real Leadership Challenges around Cyber Security

The security industry needs to pivot away from “talking about things” and why they go wrong, onto “getting things done” and fixing things. This is not a problem which has – or can have – a purely technological solution. Leadership and the profile of the leaders – NOT TECHNOLOGY – are at the heart of the execution paradigm around cyber security in today’s digital world. People trust other people, and you need the right leaders to get things done around security, with the right balance of technical understanding, management acumen, personal gravitas and emotional intelligence.

An innovative framework that will help the IoT industry scale into the billions

Much of IoT growth will be fueled by the coming 5G revolution, which will enable businesses and consumers to take advantage of a wide range of increasingly sophisticated connected devices, including wearables, security cameras, smart speakers, industrial sensors, connected vehicles and more. But for all the value that these new IoT devices and applications are expected to bring to consumers and businesses, there are some fundamental challenges within the IoT ecosystem that still need to be addressed. Securely scaling is one of the biggest challenges, given the growth projections for IoT adoption.

  • My Time with the Technology that Founded our IoT World

    Early Internet of Things (IoT) products created were based on the first 16-bit home computer processor. There are four fundamental factors that allowed IoT to change from very limited use-cases to the broader consumption that we have today. There’s no doubt that we will continue to see more and more devices connected to the Internet. Just because we may have more devices than IPv6 addresses, it doesn’t mean this will change our lives for the better.

    Internet of things – More there are, more we bank on them.

    Unlike market studies, which take weeks to present their findings, IoT offers real-time insight. This means banks can continually evolve and personalize their products instead of maintaining a static portfolio. As financial ecosystems connect among themselves and with other ecosystems on the IoT, banks can facilitate customer journeys around products from end to end and thus intensify engagement. What will be the landscape of IoT in the future? How will banks, marketers, service providers, enablers, aggregators, and users interact with this intricate web of devices and connectivity?

    Gauging the IoT Mobile App Market

    Thanks to the Internet of things, the world has become a place where everything is connected through small devices, which makes information accessible everywhere. To better understand what advantages IoT can bring to mobile apps, we need to know how they work in combination. There is an ever-increasing demand for business mobile app development, devices connected to the Internet, and mobile applications that allow you to work with them. The increasing deployment of novice technologies obliges mobile app developers to move in this direction.

    Forget the Internet of Things. Here’s what IoT really stands for

    Internet of Things doesn’t really have any meaning. What things? And what’s “Internet” about them? Fortunately, there’s a growing movement to change the definition of the tech term, to give it more meaning and set us up for the next decade of innovation.  The last decade was about connectivity, and we describe that dynamic with the Internet of Things, This decade is really about adding intelligence to different devices, services, etc. We’re confronted with a new IoT: The intelligence of things. Here’s what that shift will bring – and how everything’s going to change in the decade ahead.

    Connected Finances. Part 4: Top Benefits of Using IoT Technology in Banking

    The Internet of Things is a flourishing field for innovations and it’s primarily designed to make our life easier. Yet, there are spheres which are only discovering IoT benefits. The financial industry is one of them. You cannot expect finances and banking to stay the same as they have been. Our reliance on the bank as a building, the bank as a place, has become less important because now we can bank 24/7. We start rethinking the way financial services should work.

    IoT is a hot topic in cold chain logistics

    Cold chain logistics have additional challenges when compared to traditional logistics systems. IoT is already transforming traditional logistics and supply chain systems and can bring the same revolution for cold chain systems too. With cut-throat competition and obstacles in the logistics industry, businesses can’t ignore the benefits of IoT for cold chain logistics systems. While IoT devices do involve additional investment, the benefits and savings provided by them are huge in the long run.

    The Internet of Everything (IoE)

    The term Internet of Everything is a fairly new term, and there is a difference between the Internet of Everything (IoE) and the Internet of Things. The Internet of Everything (IoE) ” is bringing together people, process, data, and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before-turning information into actions. The Internet of Things (#IoT) is the network of physical objects accessed through the Internet.

    Security is a great concern with IoT deployment, but what about edge security?

    There is a demand for dedicated IoT security solutions for IoT devices already in the market. As edge computing begins to come into play as well, edge security must be considered. Increasingly, organisations are processing IoT data at the edge, the boundary between the analogue circuitry interacting with the physical world and the digital circuitry performing the compute and machine learning workloads, and this must also be secured: edge security. Processing data at the edge rather than a centralised cloud location means less data is exposed.

    Developing New Technologies to Prevent Lags in IoT Systems

    The performance and results derived from IoT systems largely depends on the timing of these technologies. Time lags in the execution of IoT systems can have dire consequences for the corresponding ecosystem. Time lags in IoT systems usually occur due to heavy traffic across the network bundle. Therefore, the researchers developed a subsidiary network channel that could help in carrying the response of IoT sensors. The elimination of network competition from this channel helps in seamless and unhindered transfer of signals. The new method named “EasyPass” by the research team.
