Cybersecurity and the Internet of Things: an impossible equation?

The last conference of the year at Hager Forum, held on 27 November last, dealt with the issue of cybersecurity.

This is an extremely topical subject: on the one hand, because of the surge in the number of Internet users and the IoT, with so many devices exchanging data on their users; and on the other, because of the introduction in May 2018 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which aims to strengthen and harmonise personal data protection for all EU nationals.

This is an important regulation for all citizens, consumers and individuals, but also for professionals who will have to reassert the company's bond of trust with its stakeholders, both internally (employees) and externally (customers and suppliers). 

Cybersecurity is one aspect of this regulation, and is an area that we can each address, which is why it was the subject of the conference.

 

Individuals can become the strongest link in cybersecurity

Ethical hacking and the psycho-sociology of cybersecurity were included on the conference agenda. While for Jamie Woodruff it is beyond any doubt that every company will get hacked in the next five years, he agrees with Jessica Baker that "Individuals are the central element of cybersecurity". Both speakers shared key insights for increasing vigilance and protecting our personal and professional data.

Dive (back) into the subject with the video of the conference.

 

Next appointment in 2018

We look forward to seeing you on February 5th from 1.10 to 2.10 pm (GMT +1) for a Trend Session on the major trends of the next 5 to 10 years. See you soon!

People aren't the weakest link in cybersecurity, they are the most important link. We need to have a more positive approach to how we interact with people and how to create realistic cybersecurity policies.

Jessica Barker

Every company is going to get hacked in the next five years. And for a lot of them, it's just for fun. 12 year-old kids can do this!
