Security in the IoT – McKinsey & Co. and GSA Report

“Security in the IoT” is the second study resulted from the ongoing collaboration between McKinsey & Company and the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA). It is an assessment of security-related challenges for semiconductor companies and the identification of opportunities for monetization on security features. The report focuses on 3 industry verticals: Automotive, Industrial, and Smart Buildings.

It is the result of a survey involving more than 100 industry experts, 30+ in-depth C-level executive interviews and monthly meetings of the GSA Steering Committee with ten C-level executives from major semiconductor players. The preliminary results of the study have been presented in a dedicated GSA executive conference on “Security in the IoT”, attended by over 70 industry executives on November 8, 2016 in Munich. The final results were presented during the GSA European Executive Forum, also in Munich, on April 4-5, 2017.
