Smart stadiums, connected healthcare, personalized retail experiences are just a few industries where the Internet of Things (IoT) is fundamentally changing the boundaries of cyber and physical security. Once separate, isolated business critical systems are now connected. Medical devices monitoring patient health during operations sit side by side with guest wifi networks. HVAC and coach communication systems run in the same environment as the interactive fan experience, all critical to today’s stadium experience. Retail point of sale (POS) systems are connected to inventory management robots in grocery stores.
This talk will explore and discuss how security programs must adapt to an IoT connected world where isolation is no longer a practical solution for protecting critical systems and their customers. As the IoT is integrated into nearly every aspect of a modern business, cyber-related risks elevate from a primary focus on data, to that of physical facilities integrity and business availability.
