IoT and Cyber Insurance: why is it important and what are the challenges?

Presented by

Rob Black, CISSP, Founder and Managing Principal, Fractional CISO

About this talk

The explosion of IoT devices is dramatically changing the cyber risk landscape — and not necessarily for the better. Many security experts believe that smart devices are creating a wave of vulnerabilities because they often lack strong — or, in some cases, even basic — security features. IoT devices often also lack regular product support, such as updates and patches, making them particularly vulnerable to newly discovered weaknesses.
