The complexity of IoT implementations – BaseN hosts Finnish Information Security Cluster IoT working group

::: events :::

BaseN is happy to announce the hosting of the next Finnish Information Security Cluster (FISC) IoT working group on November 21st. The group will discuss the complexity of Internet of Things (IoT) implementations caused by the diversity of the IoT. The group will further explore topics such as the demystification of wireless, with examples from radio transmission security and how data security can be too complex to be efficient. Presentations will be given by BaseN CEO Pasi Hurri and Aleksi Suhonen, Chairman of the Board at the Trex Regional Exchanges Oy.

“Covert cyber warfare continues to be waged on many fronts”, says Aleksi Suhonen. “Methods that are easier for the public to grasp, such as bugs in software or hardware, tend to get more attention from the media” continues Suhonen. “But methods like exploiting the lack of security measures in the global routing system can be even more effective if they are unknown and can go unnoticed for extended periods of time”.
