Securing the Internet of Things
Session Abstract: Virtual Only
The burgeoning IoT market will continue to be sensitive to security as the sheer number of connected devices means more attack vectors and more possibilities for hackers. Recently, the focus on IoT security has increased following a growing number of threats on outdated systems and protocols that aren’t evolving.
Platform security weaknesses can ruin consumer confidence in their smart home. IoT developers should become knowledgeable about the steps that protocols take beyond the device level to prevent hacks. This course discusses how IoT standards, specifically Z-Wave, are expanding security measures with continued advancements, updates, and mandates in order for IoT to become widely adopted across business and consumer market areas.
Z-Wave has an ecosystem of over 1700 diverse certified products from reputable companies and brands to offer multiple use-case solutions and the best-of-breed products that provide consumers with a choice. Over 90% of the lifestyle security systems in North America are powered by Z-Wave and this course will expand on recent advancements made to the popular protocol that enhance security and simplify deployment as part of the broader conversation around the need for increased security measured within IoT.
