IoT Platform: How to Make the Right Choice and Add Value

How to choose an IoT platform? That’s a more difficult question to answer, because it depends on several factors. These factors include whether you need specific hardware, protocols, real-time access, or custom reports. Make sure you take into account your IoT platform’s business model. What are the charging principles of your IoT platform? Are they based on data usage, number of users, nodes, or something else entirely? This can, in turn, have an influence on your own business model. Ask the right questions beforehand, prior to selecting a provider.

Why Cyber-Risk Is a C-Suite Issue

The poor coordination of security measures may be due to subpar or ill-informed senior leadership. Cybersecurity is a prime concern for business leaders. Rightly so, as the dependence on IT uptime and resilience has never been greater. However, corporate boards need to move beyond awareness and rhetoric into action in order to reduce the risk exposure of their organization and ensure long-term success. In the digital era, virtually every board decision will affect the organization's cyber-risk posture. That's why cybersecurity should be a recurring item on board agendas and continually reassessed in terms of the broader risk framework.
