With the connected home industry currently on the rise, what steps should be taken to sustain momentum in an upward direction? The pervasiveness of technology suggests that the expanded ecosystem of all suppliers and service providers of the connected home, not to mention the consumer, will most likely share in the burden of dealing with post event casualties in a cyber attack. Join Frost & Sullivan as we deliberate upon the issue of cybersecurity as it pertains to the connected home environment.

Reasons to Attend:

  • To maintain continued interest in connected living experiences
  • To examine how to address the issue of cyber breach
  • To receive advice and opinions addressing the disruptive trend of cybersecurity in the connected home

Analyst Quote

"Connected homes are prime examples of innovative applications of technology meant to enable enriched lifestyle experiences for consumers," suggests Frost & Sullivan Principal Consultant Konkana Khaund. "However, allowing third parties an open access to home networks to deliver these experiences exposes both the consumer as well as service providers to the potential vulnerabilities of cyberspace. It is critical to understand that cyber threats require collective responsibility and accountability sharing from all stakeholders involved."
