CONSUMER IOT


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.

It’s difficult enough to manage network security or web security or application security or mobile security but when they all come together you have the Frankenstein-like monster called IoT security. And when they all come together you have the unique challenges of security system security too – welcome to IoT.

Episode 27

Descriptive analytics is nothing new, however IoT is applying evolutionary forces to make it adapt to unstructured sensor data and evolve into a mechanism of discovery rather than report generation. Tools that blend traditional business intelligence, analytical modeling and visualization now help data scientists discover the story behind the data which can lead to valuable insights for the enterprise.

The future of UX, in certain segments of Consumer and Infrastructure IoT, will be driven by storytelling and emotions. When technology disappear, it’s replaced by magic – resulting in far stronger experiences – an experiences that want to be relived time and time again. Two examples are the Roomba vacuum by iRobot and the Disney theme park magic band. And did you know that many owners of expired Roombas can’t bear to throw them away, even after they’ve been replaced? Talk about product loyalty or is that love?

Episode 26

OK, get ready for it, we’re going to get down and dirty with predictive analytics and when I say dirty, I mean the mathematics of the different forms of predictive models dirty. Geek fest? Yes, but close your eyes and extrapolate how predictive analytics can be applied to your situation. By understanding how it works you will also understand the limits of what it can and cannot do.
