Episode 68: Security of things

“IoT security today is like what IT security was in the early 90s”.

This is how our returning guest introduces this episode’s topic; IoT security, and how it affects organisations and companies.

For the third time, Robby is joined by Brian Contos, serial security entrepreneur and now Chief Security Officer at Phosphorus Cybersecurity, a company providing IoT and OT defense solutions for enterprise customers.

Brian explains the meaning behind his not so uplifting statement above, and shares some of the most common IoT security issues they observe among their customers. He also discusses whether certain IoT devices pose a larger threat for organisations than others do, and why it’s so difficult for many organisations to create an inventory of their IoT devices.
