In May 2018, the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation will take effect, forcing companies that do business in the EU to comply with strict new standards for data privacy and security. While it won’t have the force of law for another 14 months, the GDPR is already influencing data protection strategies around the globe.
Sometimes, an organization’s biggest information security headaches come not from the ill-intentioned, but from employees who are trying to do the right thing. As companies and government agencies create and exchange unprecedented volumes of sensitive data, uncontrolled or “runaway” encryption is becoming a serious concern for organizations around the world.
In a world of proliferating cyber threats and constant data exchange, encryption continues to gain visibility as the single most important tool for long-term information security. In fact, a report from Forrester named data encryption as one of the top global cybersecurity trends of 2017. Now more than ever, individuals and businesses are looking for ways to use encryption to keep their sensitive information safe from data thieves, spies, and other cyber threats.

To better understand what we're dealing with, a deeper dive into the IoT is necessary. Here's a look at how it works, where the vulnerabilities are, and what can be done to improve the security behind the technology.
