Future Electronics’ announces the dates for series of ‘Secure Wireless Sensor Node’ seminars

Future Electronics, founded in 1968 by company president Robert Miller and now a distributor and marketer of electronics components, has announced the dates of a series of ‘Secure Wireless Sensor Node’ seminars across Europe in May and June in conjunction with World IoT day.

With the explosion in IoT edge nodes, from feeding information about the health of a patient to the health of a pot plant; the data collected and analysed can reveal valuable insights that allow for more pro-active and streamlined decisions and activities. All of which ultimately benefits both the individuals and business alike.

However, what is often overlooked is the increasing value the manipulation of this data may have to enhancing criminal activity. Ensuring a design that is robust and secure from external threats and vulnerabilities is vital to the integrity of a solution as a whole.
