This week we connect with Paul Clayson to talk about cybersecurity in the IoT space. When you are dealing with extreme constraints being secure is complicated and doing nothing is a really bad option. Paul also weighs in on the CMMC (new security model) and serial entrepreneurism.  


Paul’s Bio: CEO of AgilePQ. 98% of IoT devices are currently unsecured. On average a data breach costs $8.2 million. AgilePQ was born to address these issues. AgilePQ has raised a total of $10M. Paul has extensive experience in launching and growing early-stage companies. He has launched four disruptive technology companies and served as CEO to five early-stage companies in nanotechnology, automotive, graphene, carbon nanotube, PCB, microprocessor, and other advanced technologies.
