IoT Security: Detect and solve threats in IoT solutions
David de San Benito, Responsible for Corporate Affairs Cisco Iberia
Amador Gabaldón, IT Product Manager at PUE
This talk aims to cover two fundamental aspects:
The rapid increase in the number of connected IoT devices allows the global digitalization of all types of IT infrastructures and their components, but at the same time increases the exposure to security threats.
The availability of IoT devices opens a wide range of opportunities for application and development of services, although, by design, these devices tend to have shortcomings in the usual methods of implementing security solutions and policies. Specific cybersecurity solutions are required for IoT devices.
In this scenario, the IoT Fundamentals: IoT Security course is incorporated into the educational catalog of the Netacad program, consolidating the existing IoT training itinerary, and expanding the security implementation perspectives in the network architectures that work with these devices.
This talk will present a practical application of the IoT Security course using the different laboratories and teaching tools designed by Cisco and made available to the Cisco Academy centers for the training of their students in everything related to the implementation of security solutions for IoT devices.
The IoT Fundamentals course: IoT Security teaches students the "White Hat Hacker" skills aimed at conducting vulnerability and risk assessments. It also researches and recommends mitigation strategies for common security threats in IoT systems.
