As the popularity of the internet of things (IoT) grows exponentially, there's one question on the lips of every cyber enthusiast, expert and security expert out there: how will organisations, individuals and industries keep their networks secure?
This burning question extended to the general public and mainstream media last year, as the DDoS attacks on Dyn leveraged a network of poorly secured smart home devices and briefly wreaked havoc on websites worldwide.
This month they teamed up with business partners Entrust Datacard for a webinar to advise companies on how to build enterprise-grade IoT security from scratch — a recording of which is still freely available on IoT World News.
Harman VP Andrew Till and Entrust Datacard director Ranjeet Khanna presented on how companies can protect both budding and well-established IoT infrastructures while they collect and transmit commands and data among devices, applications and people, both in the workplace and from the field.
On the webinar our speakers explain the latest methodologies and best practices enterprises applying IoT should be aware of, and emphasize the importance and benefits of identity issuance and management for network and data security.
Harman spoke from experience in this area, having recently developed their own Secure Over-The-Air (OTA) Technology used to remotely manage and secure IoT networks and devices. Their IoT World News-hosted whitepaper demonstrates how OTA technology is a viable security option for a smart city, smart building, infrastructure, industrial automation, consumer wearable or healthcare settings.
So, if you find that the sheer enormity of the task of securing the IoT is getting you down, or the doom and gloom often spouted in the mainstream media is making you frightened, know that there are companies out there like Harman proactively tackling those threats!

Deep drilling is more crucial to Royal Dutch Shell than ever – except now much of the precious resource they're after is digital. Shell IT CTO Johan Krebbers tells us how IoT is essential for capturing data, but is otherwise a relatively small part of their overall digitalization agenda, in this exclusive interview.
In an industry where production yield and efficiency are tantamount to success, quickly identifying and correcting defects in the manufacturing process is critical. The customers of Optimal+ operate in production environments where errors related to yield and efficiency measurements can lead to losses of millions of dollars per year within a single plant. By implementing Vertica, Optimal+ is able to speed up analytical insights, combine data from different productions processes and gain visibility across the whole supply chain – leading to improved yield, quality and productivity for semiconductor and electronics manufacturers.
Join Alon Malki, Chief Architect at Optimal+, and Jeff Healey, Director of Product Marketing at HPE Vertica, to hear how advanced analytics and manufacturing intelligence can drive success in Industrial IoT. On this webinar you’ll learn:
Why HPE Vertica Analytics Platform is purpose built for IoT data
The challenges Optimal+ faced when developing a solution for IoT analytics
