Black Hat Exclusive Video: The IoT Security Threat Looms for Enterprises

Armis’ CTO discusses the top IoT security issues in the marketplace today – and whether device manufacturers will start to prioritize security.

IoT devices are everywhere – from connected smart-home gadgets to industrial IoT systems. And it’s not stopping anytime soon –┬áconsumer IoT spending is set to reach $62 billion in 2018, making it the fourth largest industry segment, according to market research firm IDC.

Many of these IoT devices are not secure, opening victims up to threats like DDoS attacks, privacy concerns and, in the worst case, even industrial-level disasters.

Armis CTO and co-founder Nadir Izrael talked to Threatpost at Black Hat USA 2018 about the threats that IoT devices are facing – and how enterprises can protect themselves.
