Governments Are Taking Action
Government concerns about the security threats of poorly designed connected devices drive investments in new standards, requirements and regulation. Products that don’t meet these requirements don’t go to market.

Hacks results in loss of intellectual property, lost productivity, and product recalls diminish workflow and talent.
