Episode 77

Lose five pounds of belly fat in five days! Sound too good to be true? Yeah, it probably is and because of that you would expect the FTC to be all over it. But instead of weight loss products, what about IoT products? What’s fair? What’s deceptive?

Episode 72

When we buy an IoT Product for our home or our business, the advice is the same: read the fine print. There are plenty of technical obstacles that can be thrown in your way to stop you from having complete control over your data but sometimes the devil is in the details and these contractual details can have a major effect on your business.

Episode 62

Repeat this mantra: Privacy by Design, Privacy by Design. Although, Security by Design is a best practice followed by IoT companies in the know, its business counterpart, related to risk, isn’t chanted nearly as often as it should be. Privacy by Design should be repeated with every second breath. In this episode of the IoT Business Show

Episode 44

If your company is collecting data, and every IoT company collects data, it needs a formal “Information Security Program”. We’ve talked risk assessment in the past, that is the process of assigning liability to each potential security breach, but that’s only part of the program.

Episode 42

The business counterpart to IoT security is risk, loosely defined as probability times liability. The current narrative around liability is centered on privacy but it turns out that laws, regulations and cyber security in general are some of the other elements in the IoT liability matrix.

Episode 33

The more I dig into it, the more I’m convinced that privacy is a bigger issue than security in IoT. Don’t get me wrong, the challenges facing IoT security are huge and in many cases, unchartered but, we’ll figure them out. Why? Because we’re good at figuring out tech. What’s going to be more challenging is teasing out the rules of engagement from the tangled web of IoT privacy. This involves people, companies, special interests and the law – much more difficult and with huge business implications.

Episode 31

Although an integral part of IoT security, IoT privacy doesn’t rely on technology. It relies instead on self-imposed business rules that govern the way the collected data is used within and outside of the enterprise. As with many things tech, government and law is unable to keep up with the innovation of IoT and with what some call its digital exhaust.
