Intelligence Brief: What lessons does Uber offer in IoT?

“In order for the market to reach the GSMA IoT revenue forecast of $1 trillion by 2025, IoT vendors such as Sprint and Vodafone recognise the need to streamline the development efforts (for example by applying repeatable rules at the start of product design) and to leverage security expertise from third parties (particularly at the security threat modelling and analysis stage). With a common frame of reference, everyone in the value chain including enterprises, users and governments, works towards the same goal of deploying secure IoT projects.”

IoT and Cloud services are a huge convenience for businesses but at what cost? When working in these environments one has to think outside of the normal security measures that businesses take. Trusting a third-party vendor might be hard but that’s exactly what businesses, like yours, pay them for.
