Securing the Intelligent Edge: Threats and Countermeasures

Abstract:

The traditional IT infrastructures of the past have evolved their edge ecosystems significantly, including but not limited to IOT, WAN, multi-cloud, and Work from Home to name a few. This creates a complex environment with its own set of risks and vulnerabilities that can be exploited. Cybercriminals consider these a prime target to infiltrate and organizations must shift vital resources to mitigate these emerging threats.
