In today’s society, we are seeing an explosion in the trend of where devices that we use both in our professional and personal lives are literally becoming intertwined and connected amongst one another.  A good example of this is our own Smartphone.  We have become so dependent upon it, that if we lose it or it is stolen, there is a moment in time where we will feel utterly paralyzed by not having it.

For example, there will be no mobile apps that we can go to in a matter of seconds in order to access the information and data that we need.  We will not be able to use Siri or Cortana to tell us how to get from Point A to Point X, or even suggest restaurants that we could stop by along the route of our destination.

This in a way, are the small beginnings for a world we will soon know as the “Internet of Things”, or “IoT” for short.  This is where we are connected with all of the objects that we interact with on a daily basis, both in the virtual and physical worlds.  The ultimate goal of all this is to make our lives much easier, by having all of these connections automate all of our routine tasks.

But, there is a huge security downfall to this as well…the more connections or interconnectivity that you have, you are actually increasing the attack surface for the Cyberattacker to prey upon.  Also, there are many points of failure involved.  If one connection fails, there could very well be a cascading effect on other connections.

What can be done about this?  In this podcast, we have the honor and privilege of interviewing Kurt Lee, the Vice of President of Sales and Strategic Alliances at Pwnie Express.  They offer a unique and cutting-edge solution that can help protect your IoT world.
