Security and the Internet of Everything and Everyone from Industrial Control Systems, through wearable tech, to “smart” devices for home, office and car there is an explosion of “things” being added to the network. But not just things. Our corporate nets are adding partners and their employees, contractors, vendors, clients, customers, potential customers and more. 25 years ago we were amazed by the million object directory - today we could conceivably add that many objects in a month.
Performance is an issue that many are wondering about, but unless security (and privacy) are built-in from the start there’s quite likely to be a rude awakening in the future.
In the first part of the Webinar Dave Kearns, Senior Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about how the Internet of Things is not a different internet from the one used by people. He'll explain why we should think of it as the Internet of Everything and Everyone; how all of the nodes are connected, all of the end points are reachable and all of it is vulnerable. But he will offer hope if only we can overcome our own parochial thinking and learn to build-in security and climb out of silos.
In the second part of the webinar, Prabath Siriwardena is Director of Security Architecture at WSO2 will discuss risks and challenges associated with, building a common identity platform, which expands across multiple heterogenous federation protocols and environments, and how to mitigate them by avoiding anti-patterns like spaghetti identity and federation silos.

Security in many organizations is not evolving fast enough to keep up with business transformation, including migration to the cloud and to Industry 4.0. These changes, while essential to remain competitive, bring fresh security risks. A new approach is needed to ensure cyber resilience.
