Understanding Vulnerabilities Across the IoT & Your Supply Chain

The corporate attack surface is rapidly expanding: how can security professionals get ahead of the curve and create resilient organizations? 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.
