As cloud computing increases and more federal data becomes available on-demand, many agencies are turning to the Internet of Things (IoT), in which they can instantly connect and exchange data via a network of interrelated physical devices with sensors, software and other technologies. IoT has allowed for military operations to take advantage of edge computing, environmental agencies to monitor the nation’s carbon output, healthcare professionals achieve regulatory compliance and much more. 

Although bringing critical federal missions onto the internet brings increased opportunity for innovation, storing critical information in this environment also invites a multitude of security risks. In this episode of The Future of Federal Data Strategy, host Camille Tutti sits down with Jason Craig, chief technology adviser for WWT to discuss the current state of IoT in the federal sector, and how agencies can benefit from it while addressing its largest security concerns.
