"Building-in Surety and Confidence" to Speed IoT Deployments and Adoption

This podcast takes a slightly different format as we host a panel session. David joins Peter Armstrong, Cyber-insurance expert at Munich RE and Duncan Jones, Senior Product Manager at Pelion.

Peter provides a fresh perspective into the industry and explains how insurance companies model the risk of the IoT. We discuss where the liability lies and Peter describes how companies can build trust into their products and drive adoption of the IoT at scale with surety, confidence and the backing of insurers.
