IoT Security at the Edge with Eurotech: “Security is not just a concern. It’s a barrier to adoption‪”‬ Beyond The Now IoT Security Podcast | PSA Certified

    • Technology

In the first episode of series 2 of the #beyondthenow IoT security podcast, David is joined by Marco Carrer, CTO of Eurotech, to examine the emergence of edge devices. They discuss what we mean by edge devices, the crucial role the edge is playing across all industries, and the challenges of edge device security. We also discuss the benefits of industry collaboration and how IoT security frameworks are bridging security knowledge gaps. 

· Introductions to Marco Carrer and Eurotech. [01:01]

· What do we mean by the edge and edge devices. [03:20]

· Why have edge devices been developed? What is driving compute closer to the data source? [4:13]

· Edge devices reduce our reliance on the cloud but the application will decide how much computing power you need at the edge. [06:27]

· Do edge devices still have a relationship with a data center? [07:44]

· What kind of industries are adopting edge technologies? [10:24]

· How the edge is enabling the merging of IT and OT in the Industrial IoT space and how this complicates security further. [12:15]

· The PSA Certified 2021 Security Report found that a lack of expertise was a major barrier when implementing IoT security, with that in mind how do customers describe their IoT security requirements to a company like Eurotech? [14:48]

· We’re in a transition phase where early adopters are keen to implement IoT security, but many people are still holding back. [16:07]

· The importance of industry collaboration to provide IoT security collaboration. [16:48]

· How IoT security frameworks are helping Eurotech and their customers understand their security requirements. [17:39]

· IoT is fragmented even beyond security with many different architectures, protocols, and deployment scenarios. [19:10]

· IoT security needs to be embraced by the entire business, not just the engineering teams. [20:02]

· We need collaboration from the entire ecosystem, even those who are traditionally seen as competitors. [21:24]

· What do you think the IoT landscape will look like in 5 years?: The emergence of edge workload consolidation. [23:31]

· How edge workload consolidation will increase IoT security adoption. [25:19]

· What advice would you give listeners when it comes to IoT security? [26:40]
