A big “thanks” to all the people who came out and made The Security of Things Forum a success. That includes all our amazing speakers and, of course, the attendees.
The Forum has generated quite a bit of media attention in the last couple days, and its all worth reading. Among the news outlets covering some aspect of our event are the following:
- Embedded Systems are a ‘life form’ by Patrick Thibodeau, Computerworld.com – this article provides a nice overview of Dan Geer’s keynote speech on how IoT technology makes us both more resilient to failure – and more brittle.
- In a Digital Ocean, Predators Outnumber Protectors by Taylor Armerding, CSO.com – Armerding provides an excellent write up on SECoT with a specific focus on Josh Corman’s ‘Swimming with Sharks’ talk about how our dependency on IoT technologies is outpacing our ability to secure them.
- A Dose of Reality in the Rush to Connect All Our Things by Chris Gonsalves at Channelnomics.com. Gonsalves provides a really nice overview of our event, as well as some of the other Internet of Things Week happenings in town.
- Internet of Things security may be a losing battle, by Brandan Blevins, Searchsecurity.com. Blevins does a nice job looking at the enterprise impact of all this IoT talk. He quotes Corman as well as Geer, while noting that companies are still focused mainly on compliance, rather than some objective standard of ‘security.’
- Internet of Things Presents Host of Security Challenges, by Jeffrey Burt, eWeek.com. Burt quotes Emil Sturniolo from the morning enterprise panel, as well as keynote speaker Dan Geer in this excellent article.

- Security Cavalry is Coming to the Internet of Things by Rich Quinnell at IoTWorld. Quinnell zeros in on Corman’s talk and his Iamthecavalry.org – a grassroots effort to encourage cross pollination between the security sector manufacturers, medical device makers and others making critical infrastructure and life-saving technologies.
