IoT Security Paradox by Acreto CEO Babak Pasdar at NJBIA Cybersecurity Summit Keynote 2018
Acreto CEO Babak Pasdar took the stage as closing Keynote Speaker to discuss the IoT Security Paradox at the New Jersey Business & Industry Association’s (NJBIA) Cybersecurity Summit on June 15, 2018. At the Newark Airport Marriott conference, The Internet of Things – Transforming your Business, Pasdar gave a speech titled, The Crypto – IoT Security Paradox: How more security makes you less secure.
Over the next three years, a staggering 50 billion Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices will be online, powering 6% of the world’s economy. Although these IoTs will exist everywhere – from supply chain vehicles to smart buildings – they’ll use a patchwork of insecure third-party applications and networks to manage Crypto / Blockchain transactions and send data.
Acreto CEO Babak Pasdar explored how IoTs need an entirely new type of security, because the enterprise security that exists today was never built for an environment where IoTs are not only mobile, they’re often geographically distributed. And surprisingly, the more layers of security added to try and secure data and Crypto-currency transactions, the less secure IoT Ecosystems become. Pasdar, Ethical Hacker and creator of the Acreto Cloud, will speak directly to this paradox.
