With Apple’s announcement on Monday of the new Apple Watch, “wearables” are once again front page news.
The new Apple Watch has a lot of promise in terms of convenience and connectivity. Unlike other smartwatches, some of them even look stylish.
The Apple Watch also raises a lot of questions about privacy and security. The new health tracking features in the Apple Watch in particular raise questions about how safe that sensitive information really is.
Security people often say that security isn’t just something you do; it’s a way of thinking. One of our researchers, David Sancho, has just put together a three part series talking about wearables that will help you look at them and think about them like a security person.
This series will help you understand the threats to all kinds of wearables, not just the new Apple Watch.
With wearables an up and coming trend in technology, it’s important to understand not just the issues around specific wearables but also how to evaluate them for yourself.
This series can help you with that by helping you to look at wearables not just like a user but also like a security person.
