11:55 AM Securing Innovative Technology from Inception

Innovation is important in today’s marketplace.  It can be the lifeblood of a company and can provide much needed differentiators and competitive advantages.  As companies rush to be first to market with new technologies, the projects are often fast tracked and released without being fully reviewed and tested.  Unfortunately, in the haste to release, quality and security are too often bypassed altogether.  This is exacerbated by the continued influx of cloud-based IoT devices and data analytics, which has created a new level of risk for organizations.  Security teams need to adjust their methods to account for these shifts in technology. Security should not have a separate evaluation process but must be embedded in the IT development process. 
 
In this case study lessons learned will include: 
•The importance of innovation to companies
•Impact and risks of fast tracking emerging technologies
•The influx of IOT devices and data analytics
•How innovation and security can work together in balance
•Steps for evaluating security in new technologies
