Episode 63

We all know, whether from experience or just intuitively, that bolting security on an IoT product after much of the development has been completed is a total rookie mistake, and a recipe for disaster. Yet this still happens. By crowdfunded startups who don’t mention security in their videos, to internal teams in larger enterprises who also emphasise the bling in order to get their project greenlit from within.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) where I speak with Chris Romeo about the Security Development Lifecycle, the polar opposite to the bolt-on, that’s been successfully used in IT security for years ...




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

You’ve heard of the KISS principle, right? Keep it Simple Stupid… Well, I don’t think many consumer smart product makers have. Maybe it’s just where we are in the IoT evolutionary cycle but often they take a perfectly fine, and simple, product and heap on to it a lot of complexity when making it smart. Even worst, this complexity often adds very little incremental value.
Listen to this analysis episode (or read the transcript) with Bruce Sinclair where he discusses how making products smart often reduces their value instead of increasing it ...

The smart home or connected home makes life good. Comfortable. Reminiscent of the Jetson’s in many ways. But business models aside, today’s big question, at least for me, is if it really is a DIY (do it yourself) market as it’s currently being betrayed.
Listen to this analysis episode (or read the transcript) with Bruce Sinclair where he discusses how going beyond home automation makes life good, and the DIY/SI question ...




Episode 57

Driverless cars, or autonomous vehicles, are the ultimate consumer IoT product. They represent the state of the art in sensors, apps and analytics but they share the same DNA as say, a smart lock. Whatever’s under the hood, driverless cars will save lives, save time and save fuel.
Listen to this analysis episode with Bruce Sinclair where he discusses why driverless cars are coming so fast and the IoT technology under the hood ...




Episode 56

Black hat, white hat… gray hat? What does it all mean? In this context, the different colored hats refer to the different approaches to testing the cyber security of your IT, or in our case, IoT infrastructure.
