This week on “Off the Shelf”, Jack Midgley, director in Deloitte Consulting LLP’s defense consulting practice, introduces the Internet of Things (IOT) Vulnerability Index and its economic, cybersecurity and defense implications across the globe.

Deloitte’s Project Icebox scanned the IOT identifying exposed system types and potential military effects of a cyber breach.  There are literally tens of thousands of IOT targets across the world.

Midgley shares the key challenges and opportunities in addressing IOT vulnerability and what it means for government, industry and the public at large.  He also provides his thoughts on the key international, strategic challenges facing the next administration.
