Dealing with the Tsunami Of Unmanaged Devices
IoT Security Theatre
Thu 27th Sep 10:50 to 11:20
The explosive growth of “smart” devices—printers, routers, cameras, smart TVs, industrial devices, medical devices, Bluetooth speakers, etc.—provides a new attack surface which can’t be managed or protected by legacy security tools. Attackers are increasingly targeting these unmanaged and IoT devices as a way to penetrate enterprise networks without detection. Both the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security have issued multiple warnings.
This session will explore the growth of unmanaged devices, provide several examples of attacks on these devices, and discuss new considerations of security architectures with a 'Zero Trust' philosophy to fill the gaps left by traditional security architectures.
What you will take away from this session
- Unmanaged devices are flooding into enterprise networks, growing 32% per year
- Attacks against unmanaged devices are rapidly growing in both quantity and sophistication
- Traditional security products can’t see, protect, or monitor unmanaged devices
- New approaches are needed to properly inventory and monitor unmanaged devices
