Security is a constant challenge for organisations big or small whether it is the security of our systems, network or data the problem continues to get more complex. Our complexity doesn’t stop there as increasingly more enterprises look to embrace Internet of things (IoT) projects our challenge grows significantly.

But why, why does IoT present such a peculiar challenge? This is an interesting question and a major security challenge. The good news is the IT industry has responded with some innovate and elegant approaches to the problem. On this week’s show, I’m joined by AgilePQ CEO Paul Clayson as we discuss both the IoT problem as well as some of those approaches to addressing it, including the innovative and elegant approach Paul’s company is taking. An approach not only looking at solving the IoT issues of today but also is looking ahead to how they can use the same approach to help crack one of the security industries biggest conundrums, quantum computing.

Join us as we go all quantum and discuss.

  • The IoT security challenge.
  • The inadequacy of today’s approaches.
  • Is the IoT security risk real?
  • When just good enough is not good enough!
  • Rethinking encryption for IoT.
  • The importance of simplicity in security at scale
  • The quantum computing problem.
  • Quantum hacks are closer than you think!
  • Tips for the top of your IoT security list.

I enjoyed this chat with Paul, it’s an area that is new to me but one that is hugely interesting not only for today’s threat posed by IoT devices but the real threat, that maybe is closer than we think, posed by a quantum computing future. AgilePQ are doing some fascinating work in this space and I’d suggest going to check them out, you can find them at or on Linkedin. You can also contact Paul at If you want to know more.
