Fifth annual Global IoT Day, comment from Martin Sugden, MD of Boldon James who highlights the need for organisations to identify and protect key data in IoT.
“The fifth annual Global IoT Day – arguably, the reason the Internet of Things is called that is because no one can quite get their heads round everything that it might encompass, so ‘things’ was the best anyone could do. Given this level of complexity, organisations must find a way to identify and protect key data in the tide of information that IoT generates. A data-centric security policy that requires staff to assign a value to data ensures that organisations can identify and control sensitive data no matter where it is and how much data they have.”
