Recent events suggest that easily-exploitable vulnerabilities are all too common, and they’re not limited to the technologies we commonly consider; Internet of things (IoT) devices could represent the next great risk to the enterprise, not to mention third-party supply chain partners.
The challenge is growing more serious each day. BitSight recently announced the discovery of critical vulnerabilities in a popular IoT device – a vehicle GPS tracker – potentially allowing hackers to track vehicles, remotely disable corporate fleets, and more. Explore media coverage on this research in The Associated Press, Bloomberg, and TechCrunch.
