IoT Security Is Too Critical to Be an Optional Extra – Security by Design, From the Beginning

IoT Security Is Too Critical to Be an Optional Extra – Security by Design, From the Beginning

Device Authority, Apr 2017: $6 trillion will be invested in the Internet of Things (IoT) between 2015 and 2020, which will yield $12.6 trillion ROI over the next decade. Until now, security has been treated as an afterthought; by adding layers of security after devices are delivered, and infrastructure and applications are already in place. Security for the IoT is too important to be treated an afterthought. To realize the full potential, the IoT ecosystem is forcing security from the beginning, built as part of the device and infrastructure.

O não pode impedir ataques, mas eles podem ajudar as investigações e a apreensão dos infratores.

Adding Even More Value to Video Surveillance

Adding Even More Value to Video Surveillance

SecureIDNews, Dec 2016: On a train platform in Washington, D.C., a lone wanderer threw himself onto inside train tracks operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA).

A train immediately pulls into the rail station, passing over the supposed suicide jumper. A long minute passes, and then remarkably the individual emerges unscathed from under the train. The man had survived his suicide attempt, but instead of being grateful, he makes an obscene gesture at the driver.
