Privacy regulations are the some of the fastest to be passed by a congressional state. California passed CCPA in just 7 days. As other states see the need to regulate privacy, a landslide of regulations is expected. As data today is viewed as a such an asset, it is also a tremendous liability.

The Importance of Engaging CISOs in Digital Transformation - Three Critical Elements to Protect for Secure Deployments

A disciplined approach is required when deploying new business models. Such is the case when adopting new transformational technologies using the Internet of Things (IoT). 

The IoT is all about data; therefore, CISOs must assess the risks and benefits before deploying the technology. Since data collected by IoT devices is associated with the people who are the ultimate recipients of new services, maintaining trust, integrity, and control over the data is paramount. 

Cryptographic services including device credentialing, data encryption, and code signing - all underpinned by a root of trust, provide the elements needed for secure deployment and compliance with regulatory requirements. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Importance of trusting devices, data, and analytics 
  2. Critical aspects of data confidentiality and integrity 
  3. Establishing a root of trust to manage cryptography
