The Internet of Things (IoT) and IoT Security is a key focus area for the US tech industry.
Cisco is one of the great American tech firms. The have worked to connect enterprises and governments and have been fundamental to the tech revolution. They are now helping connect everything everywhere, and have become masters at constructs around the Internet of Things (IoT). Cisco estimates there will be over 50 Billion devices connected to the IoT by 2020. Other estimates take that much higher. Regardless of how many are connected, we have to do what we can to make them secure and to build in a more resilient infrastructure. This quick overview by Cisco shows some ways we can think about these challenges and solutions.
The Internet of Things is one of the key trends we track at the Things Cyber Tech Landscape.
We provide insights you can use that will help you master the technology around you and help you drive optimal strategies for tech at work and in government.
