Who Will Secure The Internet Of Things?

There will be more than 6.4 billion connected or Internet of Things devices in the next year. These "smart" devices will be capable of ingesting data about its environment, transmitting that data to other devices and even responding to the call with action, if accurately programmed to do so.

The PYMNTS Digital Identity TrackerTM, powered by Oberthur, takes a deep dive into this new-normal infrastructure and gets an early head start into questions of security and device identity. In this edition of the tracker, we move beyond the essential promises of connected devices and analyze the digital identity of the individual in environments that increasingly include mobile devices where every interaction has the potential to enable commerce.

The clue: Think beyond tokens, HCE and encryption.
