Let our Middle TN ISACA chapter be the first to welcome you to 2020! Stop, catch your breath and take a minute and look around your home or workplace. Odds are within 1 minute you can identify at least 5 Internet of Things (IoT) devices within 30 ft of you right now, not including your tablet or workstation.

We live in an interconnected world of cameras, alarms, lights, TVs, thermostats, printers, exercise trackers, phones, cars, PLCs (programmable logic circuits), medical and SCADA devices, and yes even the occasional kitchen appliance! And while you are working today or sleeping tonight these devices continue to stream data to companies around the world … sometimes personal data. Security ramifications of these devices are being felt daily from industries as disparate as manufacturing, healthcare, finance and retail to our nation’s military and defense industries.

What’s a security practitioner or IT auditor to do to help safeguard their workplace and what new audit programs and controls should be considered to help uncover and mitigate related IoT threats? Join our panelists and moderator Casper Cromwell, Special Agent with the FBI’s Memphis Cyber Crimes division as we unpack this topic and navigate the IoT construction zone in 2020. Hard hats required!

Danger/Construction Zone - IOT Ahead is sponsored by RSA Security.

Special thanks to the FBI, RSA Security, and Crowe LLP.
