Then find your goals...

STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 994 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Z-Wave improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 994 standard requirements:

  1. Do you clearly and conspicuously notify consumers when a software update is available or when you are aware of reasonable steps that consumers could take to mitigate a security flaw?

  2. Is it possible to reconstruct the environment for the cyber-physical system in your organization setting in sufficient detail in order to ensure experimental validity?

  3. Have you given your consumers proper notice of any environmental risks and proper disposal methods so as to absolve your organization from any potential liability?

  4. What kind of analysis do you perform to determine all of the possible outcomes of IoT-related risks and the probability that each outcome will take place?

  5. Do consumers need to dispose of your IoT device in a specific manner to avoid any environmental risks, as improper disposal of hazardous material?

  6. What indemnity provisions do your contracts include that indemnify your organization for any liability, as privacy violations or physical harm?

  7. What kind of and how much liability do you incur if someone working under your organizations direction is injured by one of your IoT devices?

  8. When presented with the option, what percentage of customers have typically opted out of an advanced meter offering in other jurisdictions?

  9. How soon after the updates are available are you providing notice to your consumers, employees, and/or independent contractors?

  10. Does connecting your IoT device to consumers networks increase the risk of networks being accessed by malicious third parties?

Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Z-Wave investments work better.

This Z-Wave All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
