It’s one thing to be in a kickstarter–fueled start up developing your IoT product and quite another to be doing it within a structured corporate environment. Things get in the way. Priorities, personalities, politics and executive management. The same work needs to be done but other considerations need to be taken into account.

There’s a lot to developing wearables that doesn’t meet the eye. To build a wearable and the business that supports it you must recreate its creator. As with any IoT product, the skill sets needed, namely software development and data science, are more often than not, not part of the organization’s gene pool or culture. To become an IoT company each company must go through a deep tech metamorphosis to get there.

Because of where we are in the evolution of Internet of Things systems it’s not possible to simply bolt on a firewall or Intrusion Detection System. Unlike in IT, in IoT, security must be considered from the beginning as part of the product/system design. But it doesn’t mean we can’t apply some of the same techniques used by our IT brethren. Take for example network traffic analysis. It’s a hot IoT security trend that I’ve written about before but now it’s not just start-ups that are getting into the act - large companies like Symantec are planning to bring all their experience in security analytics to bear on the foes of IoT.

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 32

We speak about our offensive game so much that we forget that we need good defense in business too, that is, effectively protecting the value we create. However, and I speak from experience, the shiny new things seem so much more important than the seemingly dull security and privacy. Well, when looked at from a risk perspective, security and privacy all of a sudden becomes the purview of the manager.

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.
