Internet of Things (IoT) Security MasterClass

Experts have warned of the potential risk of large numbers of unsecured devices connecting to the Internet since the Internet of Things (IoT) concept was first proposed in the late 1990s.

Networking appliances and other objects is relatively new, security has not always been considered in product design.  IoT products are often sold with old and unpatched embedded operating systems and software.


Internet of Things (IoT) Security MasterClass is a course on how to safeguard connected devices and networks in Internet of Things (IoT). Participants will learn about the how to integrate the security aspect into their IoT design taking into consideration all the threats that can possibly happen.
