Data protection for the Internet of Things
IoT is more than machines spitting out data. It’s a store of valuable business information.
· It represents an investment of time and money to train the device (and replace human effort).
· The robot is monitoring events in which it participates and creating a log that may be required during an audit.
· The robot is tracking the number of truck bodies it moves, which is a useful double-check on production figures.
· If the configuration or log data in the robot suddenly disappears, the company will have to reconfigure and retrain it. Much of the business value of the device will also disappear.
Apply decades of normal caution to IoT
Why is this such a stretch?
